Dear Mr. Gray,

      Mr. Dave White at Alpha Accounts Inc. suggested that I contact you, to get advice about pursuing a career in accounts and finance. I worked with Dave last summer, through an internship sponsored by the Imperial School of Management (ISM) and found the work at Alpha Accounts Inc. to be exiting and well suited to my interests and skill sets. Dave suggested that an excellent first step in my career search would be a discussion about career prospects in finance with you.

      I will be in New York from June 10 to June 20. I will call your office within a week, to see if I can schedule an appointment with you during my visit to New York.
