Dear Don Sterling,

I came across a job listing for an Administrative Assistant position at Mysticorps. I am a hard-working and organized person who enjoys working with people. When I came across your job listing, it drew my interest because I feel I am a great fit for this position. I am writing this letter to offer my abilities and skills as an administrative assistant to your company.

In my 20 years as an administrative assistant, I worked for two companies that relied greatly on my analytical, organizational and communication skills. At Alligator Lighting, I generated daily financial reports. I also interacted with all levels of management on a daily basis.

As an administrative assistant at Mysticorps, I would bring my ability to effectively communicate with all kinds of people. During my time at AmeriCorps, I dealt with various personality types. That experience allowed me to significantly improve my communication and interpersonal skills. Mysticorps will also benefit from my ability to analyze data in a timely manner and my superior organizational skills.

I look forward to speaking to you more about this opportunity. Please see my resume, which is attached to this letter. You can reach me at 555-555-5555 to schedule a time that I can complete an interview. Also, I will reach out to you by phone in a week if I haven’t heard from you before that point.

Dear Catelyn Lannister,

I was sitting in my garden reading the newspaper when I saw a job posting by your company for a customer service representative position. When I read through this job posting, I was thrilled to learn that my skills and experiences match the qualifications that your company desires for this specific position.

As a customer service representative at Fire Limited, I spent four years sharpening my communication skills, my phone etiquette skills, my retention skills, and my conflict resolution skills. In just my first year on the job, I achieved the following results:

  • A customer service rating of 99%

  • My average handling time had a 60% decrease. It went down from ten minutes per call to four minutes.

  • My personal customer retention rate increased by about 40%.

As a customer service representative at Dino Security, I believe that my customer service skills will help increase your customer satisfaction rating as well as your company’s revenue. I am an enthusiastic and energetic person who will fit in well with your company’s culture.

I look forward to talking with you more about this opportunity with your company. I am available by phone at 555-555-5555 or by email at fgreen@fakemail.com.

Dear Thaddeus Hensworth,

I am an avid skateboarder with a passion for the sport. I enjoy bringing my positive attitude about this fun activity to many people. I spend time in the skate park every week teaching kids how to skateboard. That is why I got excited when I saw a posting in the newspaper for a job selling skateboards at your company. I feel I have the necessary customer service, interpersonal and communication skills to excel in this position.

After I graduated from Skylight Community College with an Associate of Arts degree in Marketing, I worked for a year at North Starportation, LLC. During that time, I developed a rapid rapport with clients and persuaded customers to buy our line of software products. I helped to increase our company’s overall sales figures by 20%

I will bring my well-honed skills to Smilespace as a sales associate. I am a fun and energetic person who will sell skateboards to your customers with enthusiasm. I find enjoyment in helping people in all areas of my life.

I look forward to speaking with you more about this opportunity. My phone number is 555-5555-5555 and my email is cchappy@fakemail.com. Please contact me at your earliest convenience to set up an interview. I will reach out to the company in one week if I don’t hear from you sooner. Thank you for your time.
