Re: Entry Level Paralegal

Dear Hiring Manager,

Referring to your recent job posting at LinkedIn, I have great interests in applying for the entry level paralegal position. Enclosed is a copy of my resume.

During the past six years, I have been a multi-tasks doer handling front desk, accounting, secretarial and administrative support duties at a non-profit international trade promotional organization with headquarters in Hong Kong. Yet, I love the job and thrive to better myself to do a better job on each and every day for I know I have a mission to help small businesses, entrepreneurs and the economy to grow. My prior role was a Legal Secretary to two attorneys at a long-established commercial debt collection and litigation law firm in Manhattan mid-town. Today, I am still thankful to the attorneys who had kindly gave me the chance to learn and be trained to adept at preparing and filing various types of litigation documents, including the Summons and Complaints, Answers, trial documents, motions and replevins.

Now I am ready and prepared for a change to land on a paralegal job. I hope to have an opportunity to contribute the best of my best, should I be hired, to benefit an organization that can offer me proper training and career development prospects in becoming a knowledgeable, confident, reliable and supportive paralegal.

Thanks for your time and I look forward to your favorable reply soon.

Hi, I am Teresa Yeung.  My Chinese name is Wai Yee.   My dad had passed away for long time and only my mom calls me Wai Yee these days.   My co-workers, siblings and friends all call me Teresa.   I have great interests in reading news and articles of various kinds.   I want to be a great writer and stories teller to the young kids.   I had some good and some bad experience with CityTech during the last few years.   The best thing about it is that many professors of my classes in the past had been very kind, supportive and encouraging in my student and career life.  It broadened my views and I always enjoyed the process of learning.  The bad thing is that the my major’s department did not give much support or advise to part-time students like me, especially in registering classes.   I like to travel to see and experience different countries’ people and culture.  This summer, I intend to continue my studies and take a class in Summer and, if time permits, pay a brief visit to a neighboring city before the next semester begins.

I do not speak native English or write perfect English but I have genuine interest in reading, exploring facts and writing.   I believe writing skills and writing style can be developed and improved over time.   Technical writing is rather new to me.   Honestly, I initially do not feel very comfortable to write and communicate with the public – the strangers. However, I am interested in learning all the latest techniques in writing, which can help me stay connected with others, get to know each other better, and seek help whenever I need it.
