I retired several months ago, and it is no fun! Not being a productive part of the world of work is driving me crazy! So I am in the job market again. (And please don't suggest volunteerism, because it is not the same thing.)
Career counselors tell me that with more than 15 years of solid property management under my belt, my experience and skills should make me very marketable. They have also suggested that the best place to start is with former acquaintances and old friends like you who might have some ideas about who I should be seeing in my job search.
Enclosed is a resume that will bring you up to date on my employment over the past 20 years. Please take a look at it, and expect a phone call from me in the next few weeks.
Aside from having the opportunity to brainstorm with you about my situation, it will be especially pleasurable for me to be able to catch up with you and your family after so long a time.
I hope this letter finds you in good health and enjoying life.
With kindest personal regards,
Robert E. McGee
