“I've just been made aware that an acquaintance of mine approached you in an unethical way. A week or so ago, after mentioning that I'd hired an excellent resume writer, he suggested that he had a contact for me inside a different company, and asked for my resume which I sent him.
Unfortunately, it looks like he decided to edit my resume and use it as his own, and then, inexplicably, ask you for a free consult. I can't fathom that behavior, and apologize that you were put in that situation. The guy was a complete ass.
It certainly wasn't my intent to send an unethical person your way; I'm thrilled with your product, and strongly believe that many of my peers would benefit from your services. “
I am writing to provide you an update on my situation. As I had predicted when we last spoke, the XXXXX interview went well and led to an offer. They provided me with a very generous offer and have great benefits. I have accepted their offer. I will be working in a position titled Senior Service Architect in which I will serve as an intermediary between the customer facing engineers and the security product development team to guide the development of their existing and future security products. This is a role that has a lot of different facets and requires many different skill sets. I look forward to being challenged by it.
I really appreciate your time working with me. Of course, your resume format got me in the door for the initial interview. I also had the enlightening experience of watching some of the in-person interviewers review it for the first time. It worked as you said. They skimmed down the resume and pulled out the headlines. For the headlines they cared about, they then read the blurb. With all the companies I have spoken with recently, I firmly believe that this format helped open doors for me. I also appreciate the time you spent speaking with me and the interest that you showed in me. You provided me with valuable insight into the minds of the employers and human resource personnel and provided me with a perspective I would not have considered on my own.
I hope that we can keep in touch over time because I have greatly valued our conversations. I also look forward to reading your blog posts as I have found them very insightful and beneficial.
