Please find below an introduction from Mostafa Aitouakrim, with his resume and transcripts attached.

——————-

It is with great enthusiasm that I am writing to express my interest in an Internship/Entry-Level position at an immigration law firm and to inquire about the procedure to have my resume posted on “listserv.”

I have completed a fellowship appointment at the Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs and currently awaiting the February 2021 bar examination results.

During the fellowship at the Department of State, I performed the tasks of a Visa Policy Analyst. I liaised between the Department’s Field Operations Office and overseas Posts. I responded to inquiries received from Consular Officers seeking guidance on policy issues prior to visa adjudication.

An Internship/Entry-Level position would be an excellent opportunity to build on my education and experience and develop new skills in a specific area of expertise.

In addition to the LL.M. in tax earned at New York Law School, I received a Master of Laws from Northeastern University School of Law in Boston. I am regarded as a very diligent and thorough worker, possess excellent research and writing skills, and fully fluent in two foreign languages (French and Arabic).

I am excited about the possibility of starting a career in immigration law. I enclosed my resume and transcripts for your review. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Mostafa Aitouakrim
