Hiring Manager for Executive Assistant – Higher Education


Dear Ms. Name,

Please consider my qualifications for the Executive Assistant position listed through CareerBuilder.com. I feel that my background and experience closely match with the requirements of the position. As an Executive Assistant to partners of a Wall Street firm and for a world-class Accounting firm, and as a Project Financial Assistant reporting to several partners at xyz company, I have at least ten years’ experience in an executive support role.

Most recently in my position as an Assistant Project Manager, I was responsible for organizing all the strict documentation requirements established by our x state client as well as coordinating the efforts of several project and contract managers and directors; all of whom were superiors to me. In addition to executive support and project management, I also have experience in accounting and marketing.

I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to further discuss this position. I may be contacted at (phone number) to arrange an interview. Thank you for your time and consideration.
