Dear Ms. Blair:
Please accept the accompanying resume and writing sample as my application for the attorney position with
the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) which was recently advertised in my law school’s employment
newsletter.
I am extremely interested in working for the FTC because of my interest in consumer and regulatory issues
and my desire to work in the public sector. I graduated from law school in May ---- and have spent the past
three years doing contract work at a number of large law firms. Much of my experience has been doing
trial preparation and discovery in complex antitrust and merger cases. In a number of these cases, I was
providing information to the U.S. Department of Justice. These experiences have strengthened my
research and writing skills, exposed me to a number of interesting and complicated legal issues, and
taught me about preparing multifaceted cases for trial.
During law school, I also had the opportunity to be exposed to consumer law issues and gain additional
practical legal experience. I took an antitrust class where studying the Microsoft case was an integral part
of the course. I also completed four le gal internships which included working with a judge, two law
firms, and the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office. The legal training I gained in law school gave me
one year of experience working on a broad range of issues in diverse settings.
I believe that the skills I have gained from my legal experiences, which include skills in dealing with
clients, problem solving, using professional judgment, working effectively in a team and being able to
work independently would qualify me for a position with the FTC. In addition, I bring maturity gained
from eight years of additional professional experience prior to law school, a commitment to the work of
the FTC, and tremendous enthusiasm.
I welcome an opportunity to meet with you and discuss my qualification and interest in the position.
Sincerely,
Sara G. Morse
