I am applying for a position within the US Government that will be evaluated via review board. I have met the director of the office that's hiring a few times (though he may not remember me) and currently work with a person who also knows the director and works on exactly the subject matter they're hiring for with me, so this person has both cred and can vouch for my skills. The person also reached out to the director to let them know I was going to apply and they could vouch for me (before I had applied and was ready for the person to reach out). How can I best use this connection? [more inside]

A friend works overseas for a US-based defence contractor. He's been involved in a somewhat work-related incident in his country of work and his employer is, long story short, refusing to advise him, maybe even turning against him. Lots of details we don't want to put on the internet. Need to find a good attorney in the US that has specialization in working with employment rights, particularly in international situations for US based entities (not sure if the defence contractor part is relevant or not). If state matters, pick Texas.

I recently sent out several job applications that required letters of recommendation from a professor. The professor's secretary sent me a box of letters that were sealed, mail-merged, and addressed to each recipient, with the intention that I drop the letter inside the application package. (This is standard operating procedure, as far as I know.) I ended up not sending a few applications for which I received letters because the recipients later indicated that no positions were available. The application period is now over and I was not offered a position. I will not reuse these letters in the future. May I ethically open the remaining sealed envelopes and read the letter?
