    I am unable to get the "Contact Me" section to work so I am posting my question here.

    I am applying for a part-time legal typist position advertised as follows:

    Downtown law firm seeking part time legal typist. Flexible hours and competitive salary. Please forward resume to xxxxxxxxxxxxxx. No phone calls, please.

    I want to continue attending college to complete my degree, but I would like to obtain part-time employment around my college schedule. I have over 20 years experience as a legal secretary and left the legal field in June 2008 to return to school (I'm 41 years old). Do you think the following sounds good for my cover letter:

    I am a student at Cleveland State University looking for a part-time legal position. I have over 20 years legal experience, most recently working for xxxxxxxxxxx before leaving in June 2008 to return to school. I have attached my resume for your consideration. I currently attend school on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:50 p.m. and Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. If my legal typing skills and legal experience would be beneficial to you, while still allowing me to pursue my degree, I would very much like to set up an interview to further explore how my skills and experience can best benefit your firm.

    If not, what changes do you propose? Please e-mail me at Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

    I contacted Ms. Grace Kutney for advice on information interviewing (after reading her blog about it). Her advice was very insightful and encouraging. I can only imagine that her resume and cover letters are the same.
