Re: Paralegal Position (Ad. ID 21044)
Dear Mr. Mann:
I am excited about the prospect of joining your company as a Paralegal. I offer a successful background in law education and eagerness to contribute to your firm using my skills and knowledge.
Possessing strong work ethics with a willingness to learn the work that a legal office thrives on, I am confident that I am the right choice for this position. Between the summer and winter semesters in 2017, I had had the opportunity to work as an intern at Rushmore Legalities. This experience sharpened my skills in performing both research activities and administrative duties. I possess the ability to use tact and judgment where case involvement is concerned, by ensuring that I analyze facts and draw logical legal conclusions.
I offer my resume as a first step in the job application process and would like to meet with you in person to discuss how I may be an asset to First Legal Advisors. I will call you at the end of this week to arrange a convenient meeting time and will be available at (000) 717-7077 if you need to contact me.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
