To whom it may concern:

I saw your position posted and thought that I would be a good candidate for the position you have available in your organization. Currently, I am seeking new experiences and challenging opportunities in a rewarding and professional environment. I have over 15 years of law firm experience as a legal secretary in the field of labor litigation, government contracts, telecommunications law and employee benefits. I am a fast learner and a team player.

I also have worked for over 10 years in several of the large accounting firms as a word processing supervisor. Having worked in both the accounting and legal sector, I think that I have the expertise and qualifications that could meet any legal or CPA/consulting environment needs. I found them both to be rewarding as well as challenging. I have knowledge and hands on experience with all of today's software.

I am available for full-time day, seasonal and/or evening positions. If after reading my resume you think that you have a position, please call me at 301-***-****. I will be more than happy to come in for an interview.

I also have over 5 years of retail experience at Filene Basement. I was a cashier and customer service desk cashier. I also trained the new cashiers when they started their job with the Basement.

Thank you
