Dear Chris Lamb:
Sarah Smith, a former colleague of mine at the Colorado Women’s Shelter, told me an
administrative assistant position is open at your organization. Congratulations on receiving
the Outstanding Community Service Award from the Colorado Non-Profit Association last
month. I appreciate an organization focused on community service and would like to be a
part of the staff doing this great work.
I would certainly bring an emphasis on customer service to the position at your agency. After
three years as an Administrative Assistant at the Colorado Women’s Shelter, I have
experience in fundraising, event planning, and working with all levels of administration. I
would enjoy using these skills to benefit the Colorado Commission for Women.
Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to meeting you.
