How do I approach this email?
My company (A) got bought by another company (lets call it X) last year. Soon after, my new company bought a company (B) that would be a dream job for me. I want to send a letter to a leader at B introducing myself in the hopes that when they have an opening that will fit my skills, they might consider me. I like working at A, but there are some frustrations. I'm a contractor, for one, and there are some management issues. I love my direct boss, but the other managers in the department are useless and/or toxic. We all work remotely now, so location doesn't really matter. B has staff all over the world. I'm thinking of framing it as "Welcome to X" then talking about my passion for B's business and why I would be a great fit if they have any openings. I have more than 20 years of experience in the field, but it's a tough area to break into. Not many jobs and the industry is on the decline but not going away entirely. Any tips or things to say or avoid in sending this email?
