Dear (Name):

I wanted to drop you a note to give you an update on how things are going in my job search. Since leaving (company) in (month), I have applied for several full-time (career/job type) positions, but have been finding things to be a bit slow. So now I’m turning to my (type of network) network for your help!

I have enclosed an updated copy of my resume in the hopes that you might be able to help me identify and/or make contact with a person or organization that might need someone with my skills and experience. I’m most interested in (mention one or two things about your dream position).

If you know someone who might be interested, would you mind passing along my resume? Also, if you are on LinkedIn, let’s connect on there. You can find my profile at url.

I appreciate your help!

Thank you,
