1. Dear Hiring Manager:
It is with great fervor that I submit my resume for the position at your organization. As an
administrative professional with over four years’ experience, I know my diverse skills and
qualifications will make me an asset to your team.
As you will see from the attached resume, I’ve built my career in a variety of roles, mostly in
public education office and classroom administration, where I was not just the administrative
assistant and technology liaison but also gatekeeper, calendar overseer, bookkeeper and
organizational guru. I’m not only used to wearing many hats, I sincerely relish it; I thrive in an
environment where no two work days are exactly the same.
In addition to being flexible and responsive, I’m also a fanatic for details – particularly when it
comes to presentation. One of my recent projects involved coordinating the school’s 2015-2016
revenue summary for all spending and accounts. I proofed and edited by the division head,
formatted spreadsheets, and generally made sure every invoice and account matched the books
and that the entire finished product conformed to the specific guidelines set by the Financial
Director. I believe in applying this same level of attention to detail to tasks as visible as prepping
the materials for a top-level meeting and as mundane as making sure the copier never runs out
In each of my previous job experiences, I have tactfully performed my assignments with an
utmost degree of skill and professionalism. My current objective is to obtain a position that will
fully utilize my knowledge and skills as well as offer an opportunity for unremitting professional
growth. In short, I must be successful but also challenged to assure personal and professional
progression. I believe in applying this same level of attention to detail to tasks as visible as
prepping the materials for a top-level meeting and as mundane as making sure the copier never
runs out of paper.
I believe in excellence and have always dedicated myself, my talents and my creative abilities to
assure the successful accomplishment of any goals. My affability, positive attitude and
willingness to give 150% makes me a valuable asset to any organization that would employ me. I
am confident that my knowledge and skills will be an asset and have a favorable impact in your
In closing, I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about your organization and the
goals and plans you have set to accomplish and by what means I may be able to contribute to its
continued achievement and development. Thank you for your time and consideration.
