Dear Mr. Rubin:
Your name was given to me by _______________(NAME), from _______________(COMPANY). I was led to believe that you both knew each other from previous opportunities you had to work together in the past. _______________(NAME) and I have also worked together, both as _______________(TITLE) and as _______________(TITLE).
As an upcoming graduate in _______________(FIELD), I am interested in joining the staff of a progressive company in the field of _______________(FIELD). My interest in this area developed from independent research that I completed during my final year at _______________(INSTITUTION). I learned to appreciate the need a dynamic and growing firm has for capable and efficient personnel.

I would appreciate the opportunity to talk with you in more detail about my career plans. You no doubt have ideas and suggestions that I haven't even thought of and possibly even names of other people whom I could contact. I look forward to speaking with you in the near future.
