Dear Mr. Odle:
I am eager to be considered for an entry level associate position with the firm of Hogan & Hartson and submit for your consideration a resume together with two recommendations and a writing sample.
I have been employed since September 1985 as a temporary paralegal in the Computer Applications Department under the supervision of Ms. Sheryl Ferguson. Attorneys with whom I have worked include Ms. Catherine J. Lacroix and, most recently, Ms. Maree Sneed.
Since my primary aim is to acquire experience in the law and not simply pecuniary gain, I am willing to accept a position at a salary considerably below that offered to entry level associates. Further, should the firm decide to make an offer of employment, I am willing to postpone my employment for a generously-reasonable period until such time that the Computer Applications Department is able to accommodate the loss of my services.
Thank you very much of your consideration.
