I am writing to let you know about my current job situation, hoping that you can give me some advice. I have decided to leave my current position at the Swaneset Company. I have worked there for several years now, and I think I have advanced as far as possible in this company. I would like to work at a larger company where there are more opportunities for advancement.
As you know, my most recent position at Swaneset has been as a software engineer in the IT Department. I have learned a great deal about this type of work and am very interested in it. I am hoping to find a similar sort of position at a larger company. I do not mind starting at a new company at the same level as I am working at now, as long as I feel there are good opportunities to move up before too long.
Since you have a lot of experience in this field, I was hoping that you could help me identify some companies that might be a good fit for me. I would also appreciate some help with my resume, if you do not mind my asking. I hope to hear from you soon.
