RE: Publisher's Assistant Position
I am e-mailing to request consideration for the Assistant position posted on your firm's website. As you review the attached resume, I believe you will find that my training and related experience are well suited for this position. If so, please grant me the opportunity to learn about your expectations for your next Assistant and to share my qualifications via a telephone or in-person interview.
My achievements as an administrative assistant, magazine production assistant, and teacher demonstrate my capacity to prioritize, focus on details, and effectively address all challenges of providing superior executive support for you and your Any Corp's colleagues. As a current temporary assignment worker with Alltemps in Topeka, I have become highly computer literate in both Macintosh and Windows operating systems and software programs. In accomplishing all that is cited on my resume, I was organized and accurate, mastered new information rapidly, and communicated effectively with supervisors, peers, and subordinates. I also work well with diverse individuals.
Thank you for reviewing my credentials. I will call in a week to schedule a convenient time to discuss my qualifications and your expectations.
