Dear Director of Employment:

A BBA degree, 20+ years of experience in the banking industry, and a background in administrative support—that's what I have to offer your organization. After a rewarding career at Michigan National Bank, I find myself in the position of seeking new career opportunities. My resume is enclosed for your review.

My career at the bank encompassed diverse areas that required skills valuable to any industry. For example:

  • Thorough understanding of administrative/office operations
  • Event-planning and management experience
  • Customer-focused attitude
  • Attention to detail and strong organizational skills
  • Ability to oversee multiple responsibilities simultaneously
  • Computer fluency

In combination with my financial responsibilities, I took a personal interest in every client. There were cases that necessitated my intervention to arbitrate differences between feuding beneficiaries. Sometimes I was called upon to schedule doctor appointments or arrange for home repair on a client's behalf. But serving the client (or the client's estate, as the case may be) was always my top priority.

Thank you for taking the time to review my credentials. I hope you feel a personal meeting would be beneficial; I am available at your convenience. If you have any questions—or when you are ready to schedule an interview—please give me a call at 123-555-1234.


Hennery Smith
