    Question Now I am finished my ideas... what can I say more?

    I am in contact with a recruiter and we are replying each other a couple of e-mails. He is newly with a new question again and, after all the things I wrote, I would like to write an encouraging answer. I put down here all our e-mails for anyone available to read all of those and give me an advise.

    I contacted him as I knew that he was looking for somebody with my experience and, very informally, he just wrote:

    Could you please forward me your cv in ms word format then i can review and contact you to discuss opportunities in more detail.

    xxxx

    My answer was:

    Dear xxxx

    Thank you for your e-mail.

    I have just moved from Italy to London and am looking for a new challenge in either the UK or Europe.

    I have broad Project Management experience with extensive Business Analysis and Change Management skills and having worked for consultancy companies I have broad expertise in consultancy and client management. I developed my experience within the Banking and Financial sector and also industries, and I have an excellent record as a reliable, productive and accountable Project Manager, as you will see from my CV.

    I live in London though I am prepared to relocate easily and quickly, and am willing to travel.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon and would welcome the opportunity to be interviewed at your convenience.

    Yours sincerely

    yyyy yyyyy

    Mobile: #####
    eMail: *******

    He answered me just asking:

    What salary would you be looking for?

    Regards

    xxxx


    So, my answer was:

    Hello xxxx

    Thank you for your e-mail.

    My salary expectation is around xxK, although I am prepared to take a drop in salary as the opportunities for learning offered by the position.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon again.

    Yours sincerely

    eMail: *******


    Now, he is newly to me with a question again:

    Hi,
    Can by any chance can you speak French?

    Regards

    xxxx


    What can I answer now? I speak two languages more a conversational one. I have broad experience in many sectors and areas, and with different skills. And also that I am prepared to take a drop in salary. Whatever else?

    At this point, or he is looking for a genius, or all of rest are genius but not me.

    I would like to answer him with something like this:

    Dear xxxx

    Thank you for a chance.

    I am very happy to see you are exploring any possible aspect for offering me an opportunity. The answer is that I can understand French but I am not able to speak it. Is your client looking for an excellent French speaker and he is not interested in all the rest that I can bring him.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon with an excellent proposal.

    Kind Regards

    yyyy yyyy


    What do you reckon?

    What do you reckon?
    I reckon he is trying to build a file on you so that when he receives requests from employers he can match skills with needs.

    To be honest I suggest you offer to go up to London and spend some time with the recruiter so that you know one another a little, and he can get all the information he needs in one go.

    Dear xxxx,

    In answer to your query, I can understand but not speak French.

    Would it help both of us if I came up to London and met you at your office? We could then sort out any other queries you might have.

    I look forward to hearing.
