Is this sentence correct?

For your perusal and evaluation, I have enclosed my curriculum vitae for further information.

My main problem with this sentence is the double usage of the word for. My idea was to replace it with with, would that be better?

Just clarifying: This is at the end of paragraph in which I describe my skills and such.


As it stands, the second for does make it seem an afterthought, which would have led a more careful writer to revise the sentence.

But it is difficult to imagine a context in which both For your perusal and evaluation and for further information would not be superfluous: why else would you enclose your CV? what else would they do with it?

I suggest that a bare I enclose my curriculum vitae tells your correspondents everything they need to know about the document, without impertinently restricting their use of it or suggesting that they require instruction in its use.
