I never imagined I'd be excited to be laid off. But when Widgets Basic showed me the door last week, I knew it was the opportunity of a lifetime. I have admired Widgets United for quite some time.
I know it's ill-advised to bash a former employer. Honestly, I enjoyed the work I did at Widgets Basic, and I'm proud of what I learned supervising the Production Division. But it was difficult to see the company held back by its resistance to investing in the latest Widget conveyors and assembly mechanisms. Conversely, I know that Widgets United has been a forward-thinking early adopter in such advances.
My good friend Carrie Carrington suggested that I reach out to you directly. Where my former company was cutting back, yours is expanding. I would love to become part of the team that brings Widgets to the next level.
Please let me know when you might be available to meet.
