Summary: Dear Ms. Babb,
Please accept the attached resume as my formal application for the Legal Assistant
position at KR&W posted on DAWGlink (#17200). The position is very exciting to me as
I have been looking for a challenging opportunity that would allow me to work in the
legal field. I believe that my research projects, education and previous work experience
make me a candidate worthy of consideration.
As a senior Psychology major at The University of Georgia, I have conducted multiple
research projects, including a senior thesis. These projects required that I take large
amounts of complicated information and extract the most relevant pieces; a skill that I
know will benefit me as a legal assistant. Throughout my time at the university, I have
also held multiple part-time jobs and have been involved in numerous leadership
activities. My ability to balance these opportunities while maintaining a 3.6 GPA is
evidence of my capacity to handle many things at once; a skill that I would look forward
to transferring into the Legal Assistant role.
I look forward to speaking with you, and will call within the next week to answer any
questions you may have. Thank you for your time and consideration.
