Dear Ms. Stanley,
I would like to express my interest in the legal receptionist position being offered by your office. I have worked as a receptionist for a small legal firm for the last six years and I would like to expand my options and become a member of the staff at Robert Half Legal.
I have the ability to:
•Answer phones and direct calls according to priority
•Talk to potential clients and determine if the service being provided by the office matches their need
•Set up appointments and important meetings
•Greet clients as they enter the office
•Know and understand much of the legal terminology
•Perform general office duties such as creating client records, filing and using the computer efficiently
I’m sure my past experience combined with my positive attitude and dedication to my job will make me one of the top applicants for this position. I’m a hard worker searching for an opportunity to advance my career by becoming a member of your team.
I would appreciate the chance to meet face to face and discuss my credentials and the qualifications you’re searching for in an applicant. I can be reached anytime to set up an interview by calling (555)-555-5555, or you can send me email at [email] if you would prefer.
