Dear Mr./Ms. Jones,

Jill Smith, a friend of mine, encouraged me to send my resume to you. We became acquainted with each other through our work at the community theater where I am the technical director.

At the present time I reside in Michigan but am very interested in relocating to California. Any assistance that you can provide for me in regards to the job search process, contacts in the theater or film area, and information about living arrangements and logistics would be extremely helpful.

I have attached my resume in hopes that my experience, especially in sound and set decoration might be of interest in the Northern California area where I hope to settle.

Thank you so much for your consideration, and I look forward to talking with you soon.
