    it is really fortunate that your CEO mentioned me about the opportunity

    Hello again!

    I am looking for a job in a specific company. There is no job posting on their website but their CEO told me there may be necessary jobs for me.

    While I am writing the cover letter, the suggestions show I should mentioned about where I get the message about the job posting, so
    in my resume, I start it like this:

    "The XXX has no doubt served as a landmark for geologists. However, it is really fortunate that your CEO, Mr. Tim, mentioned me about the opportunity to be a geologist in XXX after I get my master degree. "

    I read it again and again but it sounds really wired. Could anybody help me with this?

    Thank you.

    "Mentioned to me the opportunity..."

    Omit the "however."

    The XXX has no doubt served as a landmark for geologist.


    I do not know what you mean by landmark. An employer cannot be a landmark.
    Do you mean a preferred employer?

    not a teacher

    Advice. "Advice" is a noun. "Advise" is a verb.
