Applying An Administrative Support Position

Dear Mr. Smith,

I understand you are looking for a “Girl Friday”—someone to take control of the critical administrative and customer service functions at your location in Pinehurst, Ontario. If you’re looking for a motivated and hardworking professional with an above-average performance record, outstanding interpersonal skills, and a “get it done” attitude, I think you’ve found the best person for the job.

Over the past few years, while working for Group Six Security, I have routinely met with your company’s representatives. From this contact, I have gained an understanding of the work that you do and an appreciation for your need for strong administrative support. In my current role with TGO Consulting, I do just that: managing all critical administration for the company and supporting the activities of 30 consultants and project managers.

I invite you to review my attached resume, which details the skills and experience I offer. Highlights include

  • Strong communications and interpersonal skills – personable and friendly, with the ability to work well with colleagues, superiors, clients, and vendors
  • Extensive administrative and office support skills – includes invoices, billing, scheduling, A/P and A/R, file
    management, and data entry
  • Outstanding customer service – award-winning performance providing friendly and effective customer service in both corporate and retail environments
  • Self-motivated and hardworking – personally love challenges, extremely quick learner, and motivated to exceed expectations

I believe that my strong skills and solid work ethic would make a significant contribution to your team, and I would welcome the opportunity to meet in person to discuss this position and why I believe I am the strongest candidate you will see.

Thank you for your consideration. I will contact you soon to arrange a personal interview.

Sincerely,
