Dear Mrs. Splitt,
Re: Application for Paralegal Position
I am writing to enquire as to whether there would be an opening for a junior paralegal position in your firm.
I graduated in the top 10 percent of my class at Legalese Academy and am looking for work with a litigation firm in New York. During my studies, I had the chance to spend 4 months as a coop student at McLary LLP, working in their litigation department, and I truly enjoyed the experience. While there, I assisted two senior counsels with a class action lawsuit involving a pharmaceutical company. I helped during the discovery process, in the preparation of witnesses for trial and in the preparation of the books of documents to be presented during evidence.
I enjoy working in a fast pace environment and am confident I will meet or surpass your expectations. I have strong work ethics, am meticulous yet effective and can work under pressure. I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you in person to discuss my qualifications and answer any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours very truly,
