Sample Letter Announcing Job Search to Friends and Family - Follow Up

Dear friends and family,

I hope all is well! Thank you so much for all leads and advice you have all sent me so far as I look for a new marketing job in Washington, D.C.

I just wanted to let you all know I am still looking for a job opportunity, so if you hear of any open positions, or can think of any contacts you might be able to put me in touch with, I'd greatly appreciate hearing about them.

I've attached my resume once more; I'd appreciate it if you could show it to any contacts you have in the industry.

Thank you again!

Best,

Firstname Lastname

Should I use a recruiter?

*NOTE* - Some recruiters DO NOT like to be asked to help find you a job, they only like to HUNT and SEEK out candidates. They think that anyone coming to them could be desperate or not a prime candidate.

Advice:

1.) Find out by visiting their website what kind of recruiter they are(Do they seek out or can you reach out to them).

2.) Optiomize your Linked In and update your resume on resume databased so they CAN find you.

Story

You already learned how to find the best jobs, now is the moment of truth.

Going the extra mile to differentiate yourself and get that interview!

When you're writing an e-mail remember:

1.) Make it personal
2.) A lot of people use mobile devices to check e-mail SO KEEP IT SHORT
3.) Tell them "Why you?"
4.) Ask for an apointment or next steps
5.) Include resume and social media
