A few weeks ago I went in to a local outdoor store and spoke with the manager about a possible employment opportunity. He said there weren't any openings now but he asked me to email him a few weeks later. So here I am, a few weeks later, wondering how to write this email. 

My plan is to thank him for his time when I initially spoke with him, and to thank him for having an interest in me. Then I was going to restate my intentions of working there. Does that sound good or should I add something else?

This would also be my first real job, if that matters.

Sounds about right, man.

My suggestion is to include the date you spoke with him in the form of Monday the X

And include something about what you looked like or the discussion to job his memory of you in a good way.  Beyond that what you have is good.  

Basically think if he had 3 people he said email me in a few weeks, how would he remember you?

If you can be particular about something you discussed, that's very good.

Also offer to provide additional information and/or arrange another meeting. I usually say, "If I can provide any additional information, such as references or a writing sample, please let me know."

Sent him the email, I added information about when we initially spoke so he might remember. thanks for the help!

Political radicalism

Briefly dabbled basically a form of nihilistic anarchism (was raised in a "orthodox" religious sect, and bought into some of the New Atheist criticisms of religion, feeling that religion or established mores were a means of oppression and dishonesty, particularly literal interpretations of the Bible). Didn't consider myself an "atheist" but was against "organized religion" - got disillusioned with it pretty quickly when I realized most of the New Atheist followers were far-left socialists and…See More

Offered a job- can't decide whether to accept!

Hi there, I'm struggling to make up my mind regarding a job offer which if accepted would be life changing for me, and would appreciate others' input, as I've been unable to reach a decision despite thinking about it all weekend.My current situation is that I live and work in London, England managing peoples' investments. I struggled for several years to find a firm where I could grow a client base, which is what I have been able to do at the present firm. So I am very grateful to have a job…See More
