Dear (Mr. or Ms.)(Last Name):
I read your advertisement for an Administrative Assistant with great interest and enthusiasm, as my
skills and qualifications match your requirements for this position. Therefore, I am submitting my
résumé for your review and consideration. Please allow me to explain briefly the contribution I would
make with your organization.
Throughout my 20+-year career as an administrative assistant, I have demonstrated proficiency in all
core office administration functions, including document preparation, internal/external communications,
data and records management, meeting scheduling, and task prioritization. In short, I can manage the
office without supervision, juggle multiple tasks effectively, and maintain confidentiality with highly
sensitive materials and matters.
In addition, I have experience in supervising staff and working with high net worth clients, both
of which require extra attention to the “people management” side of business. Through
successfully managing both internal and external relationships, I have accelerated the
achievement of goals and positioned myself as a valuable resource in a variety of situations.
I would bring to your district not only these administrative skills, but also a positive, cooperative attitude
that I have displayed throughout my career. I maintain calm under pressure and adapt to meet the
unique needs of each organization.
Again, my résumé will detail the required skills and background you seek. I would welcome the
opportunity for an interview at your convenience, and I thank you in advance for your time and
consideration. I can be reached at (443) 000-0000 or (410) 000-0000. I can also be reached by way
of email at: Terrobrien123@yahoo.com.
