Dear Mr Gordon,

I noticed your advertisement on the Dayjob.com website for an Administrative Assistant, and as someone who has extensive experience of this role, I feel I am well suited to exceed your expectations. Not only do I appear to meet your exact needs, but the position is also one which I have always sought and firmly believe I will thrive in.

I am your man if your company is looking for a results orientated person who can prepare contract documents, run filing systems and provide administrative support to senior office staff. I have working knowledge of administrative processes, complex business structures and understand the need for confidentiality and for doing things in line with a company’s audit requirements.

My strong work ethic is evident from the commendations I have received from my previous employers. Possessing a genuine interest in other people’s problems and a willingness to help them when asked, I feel I will fit in easily into any existing workplace environment. I have set myself high career goals and through continued professional development, and a positive work life balance, I am steadily achieving all of them.

If you feel that my expertise is a close match to your requirements and that an interview will be to our mutual benefit, then please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your consideration, and I expectantly look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Harris
