Advice needed on a cover letter to a solid contact...
« on: January 07, 2009, 10:27:12 AM »
I have a great contact at a local firm.  Going to do the standard "want to get together and discuss your area of the law".  Thought I would approach it from a 'looking for advice" angle (which I am - a summer gig would be great though).  Has anyone crafted a letter like this?  If there is any advice out there, let me know.  I'm stuck on tone, mostly -  Formal, informal, email, regular mail, send a resume or hold off...

Thanks for the advice.  Yeah, absolutely not going to ask for a job.
