Dear Human Capital Manager:

I recently graduated from college with a Paralegal Diploma. In August 2010, I will be
writing the Law Society of Upper Canada P1 Paralegal license. This investment into myself
was driven by my long sought after desire to work in the field of law.

I offer to you, an individual with a vast amount of cross-related experience and a strong
work ethic who is willing to learn from the bottom up. I am currently looking for a position
that I can begin my law career with, such as; law clerk, legal assistant, legal secretary,
paralegal assistant, court clerk or a position that has some legal aspect to it.

My previous employment has given me a great deal of experience and skills in


management, sales, finance and corporate law. I have superior customer service and
interpersonal skills, as well as being a co-operative, supportive team player. My expertise is
managing office work, with extensive purchasing, billing, bookkeeping and government
remittance experience.

My greatest achievement involved guiding staff members into a computer-based


environment. At Grey Fort Quilts, I implemented the Smart Vendor inventory and point-of-
sale system. This experience taught me the capacity to be patient and empathetic in my
leadership role.

My plan for you is a long-term commitment where my natural research skills and desire to
learn will add to your team. Thank you for reviewing my CV and I look forward to meeting
with you. If you have any further questions, or would like to schedule an interview, I can be
contacted at (519) 772-8294.

Sincerely,

Allen Young
