Dear Mr./Mrs./Ms. [Manager’s Name],
I am interested in applying for the full time position as a Senior Office Clerk as posted
on Website. Enclosed is my resume for your reference.
I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Sociology in Feb 2007. Since then, I’ve
performed seven years of administrative experience. In that time, I’ve gained in
depth knowledge of the various tasks and duties required of office clerks across the
spectrum of job roles. I have a wide ranging familiarity with Microsoft Office and
other office management software, and have developed a suite of efficiency tools to
keep the office organized and on task.
Working as Head Office Clerk at Omega Corporations has prepared me to meet the
challenges of a managerial role in professional office environment. I have shown my
competency in clerical duties such as filing, typing, answering phone calls, and
dealing with public. I simplified the process of retrieving data from the computer
systems, maintaining departmental records, and typing daily reports, which allowed
the company to save $24,000 in labor cost annually. In addition, I was responsible for
supervising and training a staff of three regular clerks and four interns. I believe that
my proven managerial skills and cost cutting abilities, I can contribute effectively to
your company and be a valuable employee.
Additionally, I worked at Land’s End Industries where I handled the payroll activities
for 60+ employees, answered an average of 40 calls per day and improved customer
service rating by 15% via training other employees in new service
techniques. Throughout my tenure I was reputed for taking the initiative, welcoming
challenges, and scrutinizing alternatives to overcome obstacles.
I would be thrilled to have an opportunity to personally interview with you. Please
feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your
