Dear ____________:

As an experienced Executive Assistant and Office Manager who has successfully supported senior-level management personnel over an 18-year career, I have developed the skills and acquired the knowledge to ensure the highest level of competence, time management, confidentiality, and effective operations. My ongoing objective is to make the job of the boss easier, and I have consistently been successful in doing just that. It is this ability, plus a commitment to quality, that I believe would bring added value to you and your organization.

As a highly competent Executive Assistant, my team and individual performance has been praised by past employers based on

  • Loyalty and service
  • Detailed research and information for the completion of special projects
  • Proficient computer and office service skills
  • Time management and excellent prioritizing and organizational strengths
  • Extensive experience scheduling and coordinating activities and collaboration with other internal and external customers at all levels of management
I have enclosed a résumé for your review that will enable you to obtain a more in-depth idea of the scope and breadth of my experience. However, since it is difficult to get one's personality on paper, I would welcome the opportunity to meet and discuss how my strengths and abilities would be of benefit to you. I will call next week to schedule a meeting at a mutually convenient time. Thank you for reviewing the materials, and I look forward to speaking with you.


John Michel
