John Smith,
National Bank,
257 Park Avenue South,
New York, NY 12345-6789.

Dear John,

Regional Bank, the firm I worked with for the last four years, was sold at year-end and merged with another financial institution. As a result, my job was eliminated but I was asked to remain and assist in managing the personal loans. The position was temporary, and relocation was required to make it permanent. I am looking forward towards opportunities locally here in New York. I'm looking for some advice and counsel from people I know and trust.

I'd like to continue to be a senior accountant in a financial services company (bank, savings and loan, credit union, insurance company, etc.). I'm good at administration and teamwork. I've also managed data processing tasks of all volumes. I like being a part of a dynamic organization, and I am looking for that next opportunity.

You're a successful person with friends who are also successful. Perhaps you, or someone you know, are cognizant of a firm that needs someone with my capabilities. If so, I'd appreciate your giving them a copy of the enclosed resume, and I'd like their name so that I can contact them personally.

My earlier job has been exciting, and I'm sure the next opportunity will hold even more promise. I'm glad about the prospect for change and I hope that you can help me make sure it's a positive change. I'd appreciate your thoughts and ideas. Thanks for your help.

Sincerely,

Richard Anderson.

Mr. John Smith,
National Bank,
257, Park Avenue South,
New York, NY 12345-6789.

Dear Mr. Smith,

From our meeting and phone conversations, I got the privilege to know your company in detail. I am very excited by the prospect of working for National Bank. Your finance and accounting team is among the most impressive I have met in my job search. Your company ethics are clean and your work force efficient.

In short, I am eager to accept your offer and begin working for National Bank. However, I should be telling you that I have received another offer of employment with Regional Bank, NY. While everything at your company holds a greater opportunity for me, and my career, I must tell you that they have offered a salary $5000/annum higher than your offer.

Instead of accepting their offer immediately, I wanted to reaffirm my interests in National Bank and express my hope that we can come to terms on this matter and begin our happy association as soon as possible.

I eagerly await your response.

Sincerely,

Richard Anderson,
Senior Student, Commerce,
