Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Mars


Executive Administrator

Dear Hiring Manager,

I am submitting my resume for the position of Executive Administrator currently posted on the Mars career web site. With an extensive career in administrative roles for world-wide organizations, I believe I am an excellent candidate. Having been referred to this posting by my “Martian” friend, I feel that my core beliefs are in alignment with the Five Principles. Accomplishing goals with quality, responsibility and efficiency is something I strive for. I would love to join a team guided by a culture of mutuality and freedom.

It would be an honor to work for a company with such iconic brands, including my personal favorite, M&M’s! I’m excited to see a business such as Mars place importance on health & wellness, as well as developing great talent. I believe providing employees with an environment where they can learn and improve is as important as manufacturing a great product.

Throughout my career, I have been consistently recognized for my attention to detail and the ability to bring people together to plan, coordinate, and execute projects to meet desired objectives. My key contributions and skills include:

  • - Providing high level executive support including calendar coordination, processing American Express expense reports and scheduling domestic and international travel.
  • - Volunteering as yearly United Way funding drive coordinator with a greater than 90% participation rate.
  • - Scheduling and planning off-site and on-site meetings, training sessions and employee engagement activities
  • - Ability to work in fast-paced, high-pressured positions, with a demonstrated ability to prioritize multiple tasks, deal with ambiguity, meet deadlines, and provide quality service
  • - Strong verbal and written communication skills with high-level interpersonal and problem solving abilities

I look forward to hearing from you to further explore how my skills will enable you to meet your objectives. Thank you for your time and consideration.
