I graduated from <name> in <year> with a degree in <major>. Currently, I am seeking <employment/advancement> in this field, but have been unable to make any progress. I was wondering what assistance the <major> Department could render.
If you have any job listings, or there are faculty members who have contacts in my field, I would appreciate it if you could contact me. I would be happy to do the legwork myself. I just need a place to start.
Please contact me at <phone number> with any information. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.
