Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Beacon Hill




I am writing to apply for a temporary administrative position in the Washington, D.C. metro area through Beacon Hill Staffing. I am very interested in this position and believe that my skills, talents and experiences would make me an ideal candidate for Beacon Hill Staffing.

As the Office Manager, I worked independently to create an office manual that detailed office procedures and processes for future employees. I was responsible for organizing and facilitating professional seminars for students and staff participating in the Executive Leadership Program. Duties included scheduling guest speakers, organizing catering for events for up to thirty people, preparing professional PowerPoint presentations and ensuring events ran smoothly. I regularly interacted with students, professors and VIP guests with professionalism on the phone and in person and I performed these tasks with little oversight as my direct supervisor worked from another campus.

Most recently I worked as a Volunteer for the Americorps. As an Americorps Volunteer, I taught English to more than 200 high school students. In Americorps I learned how to approach problems creatively to find sustainable solutions and work with diverse groups of people within my community. 

In addition to my projects in my community, I also worked closely with Americorps administration on training incoming volunteers and developing the Education Program project framework. I was chosen to create training materials for incoming Americorps Trainees due to my organizational skills and my attention to detail. I implemented sessions on teaching English and technical skills, such as lesson planning. The training materials I created have been used by Americorps in subsequent trainings.

By bringing my planning, writing, and organizational skills, as well as my technical background and leadership experience, I know I will be able to make a positive contribution to any organization. My solid work ethic, ability to work both independently and as a member of a team, as well as my commitment to performance and accountability will be an asset to any position.

I would appreciate an opportunity to discuss with you how I might best meet your staffing needs. Please contact me at xxx-xxxx or by email at xxxxx@xx.com to discuss the possibility of an interview. Thank you for your consideration.
