Human Resources Director

City, ST 12345

Dear Mr. Cummings:

I am highly motivated and qualified to serve in an administrative position at Any Corporation. As is detailed on my resume, I offer extensive and varied experience in administrative roles in employment as well as community services roles. In summary, I offer Any Corporation:

  • Experience with staff supervision and motivation.

  • A record of success in meeting planning and direction and activities scheduling.

  • Confidence in public-speaking situations.

  • Excellent phone and correspondence skills.

  • Bookkeeping, fundraising, and promotions talents.

If you are looking for someone with these skills, I hope you will give me the opportunity to speak to you. During a telephone conversation and, ideally, a meeting, I can expand upon the above bullet items and personalize my candidacy. A resume and cover letter can reveal a great deal, but in-person communications are, I believe, best.

Thank you for your time.


Chris Smith
