Dear Ms. Carlson,

I am forwarding my résumé, as I understand that you specialize in the profession of accounting.  As you may have heard, the management structure of __________ will  be restructured in the near future.  While I am excited about the future of the company under the new management, I have decided to make the change an opportunity for personal professional change and growth.

I have many years of experience that make me well suited for a position in finance management in any medium-sized service firm, but I am open to any opportunities that you believe that I am suited for.  Although I would prefer to be able to remain in Arizona, I would consider moving to other parts of the country if the opportunity justifies it.  I am currently earning $70,000 per year.

I have included a copy of my résumé for your review.  In the event that you are conducting a search for someone with my background or skill set at the present time or in the near future, I would greatly appreciate your consideration for the job opening.  I would also like an opportunity to discuss my background in greater detail with you over the telephone or in a personal interview.

I look forward to hearing from you.
