Dear Coffman,

           Mr. Sam White provided me your reference. I am a management graduate from New York University with 1 year of work experience with Alpha Management Services as junior administrator. Currently, I am looking for a job change, as my current company is closing it New York office and has offered all its employees to shift to their Florida Office. I do not want to shift to Florida; hence, I am looking for a job change.

           During my tenure at Alpha Management Services, I have gained practical knowledge about administrative tasks like maintaining and coordinating different events and programs for the client. I am looking for job profile similar to my current job profile. I am open to work in a middle level or small company in New York. I do not want to relocate to any new location as my family stays in New York. If you are aware about any job opening that suit my job profile, then please recommend me for the job or provide me their contact details, so that I can directly apply for the job.

           Thank you for taking time out from your busy schedule to go through the letter. I have enclosed my resume that will provide complete details about my professional experience.

           I would request you for an appointment, so that I can discuss my future job prospects with you.
