What should the main points of your letter be?
First, state the purpose of your letter, the type of job you are applying for and how you heard about the company. Second, briefly say why you are interested in the position and in the company. Include what you can offer in the way of educational/work experience. Third, thank the employer for taking the time to look over your resume. Mention that you will be the one to get in touch with them to answer any questions about your resume and find out if the employer has any further questions. End by saying you hope to speak with them again in the near future.
I have also gained extensive experience in legal and policy research – fields that you state the author’s assistant must be familiar with. My experience in the NYS Assembly has afforded me the opportunity to become familiar with the consolidated and unconsolidated laws of the State of New York. In particular, through my work with Assemblywoman XXXX, I have become heavily involved in the current welfare and Medicaid reform movement. I am always eager to learn more about state legislation, reading up on these topics on my own time to become more knowledgeable. I would love to bring this passion for policy and law to your company.
