Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to discuss some ideas regarding my job search. Your input and information has been of tremendous help.
You were the first person I talked to on this journey, and I think I was both fortunate and lucky to have contacted you first. I felt a tremendous amount of support from you and I cannot begin to tell you how important that has been. I have talked to Sandy, who put me in touch with Bill Ralston, the head legal counsel for United Banks of California. I had lunch with Bill, who also turned out to be very helpful. U.B.C. did not have any openings, but Bill gave me the name of another person. I will be meeting with that person in the next few days.
I have been involved in this process long enough that I am beginning to be able to determine who the key players are in this city with respect to corporate practice. I have also met numerous persons, and have been astounded at how helpful almost everyone has been.
At this time, I have not really been in touch with many people who are in a position to offer me a job; however, I am narrowing in on some of them. This is a time-consuming process, but I believe I am beginning to see how it all works. Since you were the first person I talked to, I am particularly grateful for your encouragement. I will let you know when something more definite develops.
Thank you very much.
Very truly yours,
Richard E. Hart
