Subject: Big Round of Thanks from Paris Welding

Dear Friends,
Greetings from the new Research Assistant at the Tempest Geology Institute! That’s right, I got the job!

It isn’t always fun looking for a job—but you made my last job search fun and interesting. I mean... what a great excuse to meet some really impressive people in my field. And I met them because they’re your friends and associates!

Thank you for your generous support. I really appreciate it!
Paris

Pam,
Special thanks for getting me in the door with your buddy at Limestone Labs. Not only did Dave have great suggestions—he was my link to my new boss.
Thank you!
Paris
