My Legal Credentials -- Major Law Firm Assessment

Dear Mr. Freedman:

Thank you for your recent inquiry to Mr. Eldon Crowell regarding an associate position with Crowell & Moring.  Having been considered by the Recruiting Committee, your resume has been referred to me as the Recruitment Administrator.

Although your credentials indicate considerable professional promise, we must be discouraging about the prospects of employment with the firm.  We receive many resumes of well-qualified people for a small number of positions and unfortunately must decline the opportunity to talk with a number of attractive candidates.

We appreciate your interest in Crowell & Moring and wish you every success in your search for an associate position.

Recruitment Administrator

Dear Mr. Freedman:

Thank you for your letter of February 7, enclosing your resume which was referred to me as Chairman of the Hiring Committee by Larry Hoffman. After reviewing and fully discussing your inquiry concerning employment and our staffing needs, we have reluctantly concluded that we are unable to explore further the matter of employment with you.

With the experience and credentials you present, it is difficult for us to have to decline the opportunity to discuss employment with you. At the same time, it is obvious that someone with your qualifications will have little difficulty in finding any number of challenging and rewarding opportunities.

We do appreciate your interest in our firm. We wish you the very best in your future endeavors.
