Dear Fred,

Thank you so much for letting me know about the job opening at Acme Associates. Steve was as helpful as you said he would be. I have an interview next week with the supervisor of the accounting department. I'm hopeful that this will work out for me.

I really appreciate the support and advice you've given me during my job search. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you in the future,

Best Regards,

Betty Brown
