I am trying to say something like, "Me wanting to work in prosecution + me wanting to stay in this city = maybe me considering working for you long term," but I don't want to sound presumptuous or insincere (I mean, this is just a 1L gig after all). But I do want them to know I'm actually interested in their office and in their location long term, since it may help a little in my app.
Anybody got a good way to word this so I don't sound like a DB?
I'm sure every school has something like this floating around, but LLS provides this example of a 1L prosecution cover letter. Seems like a decent, basic format for getting the whole "I want to work in prosecution" thing across: --LinkRemoved--
Obviously the point is to change it up, personalize, etc. But it gives you an idea of what type of things to say. As for wanting to potentially stay in the city, not sure how you would word it; maybe you could write a sentence or two (cheesy as it is) about how you want to give back to / serve the city you love, etc. Maybe dig into something public service-y in your past that inspired you to want to do government work.
