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.
Focuses on desired goal and on resume in first paragraph.
Summarizes qualifications via bullet points.
Identifies phone and in-person interview as next possible steps.
