I would appreciate your assistance with my job search. I am in the process of relocating to New York City and I am searching for a position in online media.
With your permission, I would appreciate being able to use you as a reference who can speak to my qualifications, skills and abilities. Of course, I would advise you when I have given out your name and contact information, so you will know when to expect a call. Please let me know if you would be willing to provide a reference for me.
Advice and suggestions on the best way to conduct my job search would also be appreciated. In addition, if you are aware of any job openings that I might be qualified for, I would appreciate you informing me.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
