Dear Mr. Cummings:
Francis Williams suggested I apply for the secretarial position (#23B) recently posted on your company's website. As a current employee of Any Corporation, she is well aware of the qualifications and motivations you seek in administrative support professionals. As a past coworker of mine, she is very familiar with my potential to join here on the Any Corporation team. I hope that after reviewing the attached resume, you will find that my abilities and capabilities suit your needs and that I will be invited to interview for this position.
During my last five years with Any Photographers, my responsibilities have included assisting on shoots, handling incoming calls, arranging appointments, and drafting, editing, and word-processing all correspondence. As a service representative for the Other Corporation, I dealt with all customer inquiries and resolved problems in shipping and billing, maintaining all written documentation and electronic information accurately. I am accustomed to working closely with staff and management in a fast-paced environment and enjoy the satisfaction of doing a job well. Summarizing, the skills I now offer Any Corporation include:
Administrative and customer-service achievements spanning 6 years.
Abilities to use, support, and teach others Word, Access, PowerPoint, Excel, and Internet applications.
Bilingual Spanish-English abilities that have been used on the job.
Awareness of the critical importance of secretarial and administrative staffers.
I look forward to interviewing for the secretarial position now available at Any Corporation. Thank you for your consideration.
