Dear Mr. Martinez,
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 résumé, 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, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
