Dear Mr. Smith:
My former colleague Joan Brown informed me that you are seeking to hire an
administrative assistant. I worked in Ms. Brown’s department at Acme as an office
intern and have 2 years of administrative experience. I have long admired XYZ
Corporation and would be honored to work for your company.
As you can see from my résumé, I have performed many administrative duties in my
previous internships at Acme and Ajax corporations. At Ajax, I helped facilitate the
company's transition from handwritten to digital records. That work enabled me to take
on more responsibilities and support larger projects. At Acme, I assisted the director of
innovation in tracking the development of new products. I helped introduce the
company's workflow management system, which enabled Acme to cut the average
development time of its software upgrades from 18 weeks to 12 weeks.
I would be pleased to speak with you to discuss the details of the administrative
assistant position. Thank you for your consideration of my application.
