"I just wanted to thank you again for all your assistance with my recent job search. I know that this is said often, but I really mean it: I would not have made it this far without your candid advice and your extremely helpful input on my correspondence and interviews with my new employer.

You made yourself available to help me on short notice, often at times that you should have been enjoying your time at home.

You never told me what to do, instead you showed me why it was important. 

No question was ever ignored and you provided advice based on every conceivable contingency I could imagine.

When I started my search for a new job, the process was daunting. Once I started working with you I received clarity on the process and all of my fears were assuaged. My only regret is that I didn't start working with you sooner.

Thank you again for all your help and I look forward to working with you again in the future."
