Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name],
After discovering your advertisement in the Wichita Eagle yesterday, I was immediately intrigued by the opportunity to work at [Target Company] as an Administrative Assistant. My five years of relevant experience combined with my friendly demeanor and attention to detail make me an ideal candidate for this position.
Administrative work is foundational to a company, and I relish the opportunity to play such a critical role in the office. At BFD Associates based in Chicago, I worked as the Receptionist for one year, where I quickly became a vital part of the team. During my first six months, I boosted the company’s mailing capabilities by 8% using new, simplified digital formatting for invoices. As the Office Manager at Micro Communications, I implemented office management software that reduced labor costs by 5% in 2014.
[Target Company] has been on my radar for years now because I simply love its products and find its positive public image refreshing. I am aware that [Target Company] seeks to increase its reach into out-of-state markets, particularly in Colorado and Oklahoma. I grew up in the Denver metropolitan area, and believe my intimate knowledge of the culture there could be effectively wielded to the benefit of [Target Company].
I’d love to have a face-to-face interview if possible. The opportunity to work for [Target Company] is an exciting prospect, and I’d love to play a role in the maintenance and expansion of the company. I am available for an interview at any time, please feel free to email me at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time and consideration.
