Dear Mr. Pettibon,
I was excited to learn that your law firm is seeking a Clerk Typist as I am both interested in the legal industry while also having superior dictation skills. I am able to accurately type over 100 words per minute with minimal errors. After high school I completed a technical certificate program as a Clerk Typist and now have gained two years of office experience.
My current position as a Clerk Typist is at Rand McNally where I am expected to take dictation and write letters memorandums and reports with high accuracy and speed. In order to accomplish this I rely on excellent grammar punctuation and keyboarding skills. I am good at taking direction from superiors.While I do enjoy my current role I have always wanted to use my skills in a law firm. I could bring my strong dictation skills to good use while preparing letters reports and other documentation with great accuracy. I also understand the high confidentiality needs a law firm requires.
I believe I would be a strong asset to Johnson Pettibon & Moore P.C. if selected as the new Clerk Typist. I invite you to call me to schedule an interview. I am reachable by telephone.
