Everybody seems to be downsizing these days. While I don't know if <company name> is planning to, you're certainly always looking for ways to save money and keep good people, right? Well, I'd like to offer you a chance to do just that by hiring me as a <your field>.

What about the saving money part? That comes from the telecommuting that I can do. I've got a home office set up with <components of home office> all ready to go. I can easily work part of the week from home and part of the week from the office. That saves you money on office space and overhead, and makes me more productive since I don't have to commute. I can even show you how to set up a telecommuting program for other employees!

I know, some people think it's a bit risky. But how else could you get a <your field> with <years experience> and still save money in the long run? Whether <company name> is hiring currently or you're biding your time, I think talking with me would be worth your while. Please give me a call at <phone number> and let's talk. I think it'll be a real eye opener.

I look forward to hearing from you. Take care.


Jim Karter
