Cover Letter to Executive Recruiter after layoff
I am writing this as I find myself in the job market for the first time as a result of corporate restructuring. In addition to my own networking efforts, I am seeking a good executive search firm to help me connect with the right situation. Your company (name) was referred to me by a close friend whom you helped find suitable employment few years back under similar circumstances.
Until two months back, I was the vice president in charge of manufacturing for (name of company). The company manufactured hardware computer components, however, despite the fact that we offered an excellent product at a competitive price, the company has decided to move manufacturing offshore and place a national of that country in charge.
I would like to inform you that I have had a very successful career and have sound technical knowledge and managerial ability,which will make me an asset to any firm.
I shall look forward to discussing it with you and hope that we can bring this search to a successful conclusion.
