Dear Ms. Day:

Dr. Morgan, professor of Political Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago, suggested that I contact you for a possible opening for a law clerk position.

As a criminal justice major, I am interested in gaining experience in this field. Although I do not have experience working in a law firm, I would like the opportunity to work in that type of environment. Through my position in the Admissions and Records Office at UIC as a general office aide and coursework, I have gained skills in the areas of data entry, customer service, teamwork, as well as oral and written communication. Furthermore, I am a quick learner and am very interested in working at your firm.

Enclosed is my resume for your reference. I will call you next week to see if we can arrange a brief meeting at your convenience. You can reach me at the above phone number, or via e-mail at jdwilkens@uic.edu.

Thank you for considering my request.
