From: Isaac-K@blackmesarf.com To: WallaceBreen@blackmesarf.com Subject: Black Mesa Civilian Recruitment Division Date: 05-Jan, 2:37 PM Dear Administrator, In light of recent developments in the Anomalous Materials Laboratories, we’ve found ourselves somewhat understaffed for the given workload pushed upon us. I would like to take the time to recommend the use of the Black Mesa Civilian Recruitment Division to increase our workforce. I speak on behalf on everyone in the Anomalous Materials Lab when I say that we could really use the extra minds and hands. Understandably, the work currently performed within the Anomalous Materials Laboratories and surrounding divisions are of a top-secret nature. Despite this, I still strongly recommend a push for the recruitment of suitable individuals to level 3 clearance in order to assist with the development of the new “Anti-Mass Spectrometer” project. I understand that the process of locating, assessing, and recruiting new workforces to level 3 clearance is a long and arduous endeavour, so I wish to personally recommend the accelerated recruitment of one suitable individual currently on the wait list within the BMCRD: One Doctor Gordon Freeman, MIT graduate with a PhD in Theoretical Physics, shows great promise towards the fields of research performed within the Anomalous Materials Lab. I can personally vouch for his skills as a scientist, as he has been the subject of my mentorship for the past year. I undoubtedly and wholeheartedly believe that Gordon would be an excellent contribution to the Anomalous Materials Laboratories team, and I wish to work alongside Dr. Freeman within our laboratories sooner rather than later. I hope to hear your response and approval of my selection in due time! Yours sincerely, Dr. Isaac Kleiner.
