I am writing this on the
recommendation of my good friend and colleague (name of person). She believed that you may
be able to guide me in the field of career in art history.
I have enclosed my resume
for your review. Currently I am majoring in Art History from the (name of University) and
will complete my final year in (month, year). As an art history major, I am exploring
several career paths, such as curatorial work, historic preservation research, and art
education. Therefore, I want to seek an appointment with a knowledgeable person as you,
who can guide me about the long-term implications of each path as well as the day-to-day
activities of entry-level positions in a museum.
I shall call you next
week to see if we can arrange a brief meeting at mutually convenient date.
Thank you for considering
