Penny Chapman 48 Morning St Reading NSW 2011 T: (02) 9999 0000 M: 0400 000 000 E: p.chapman@email.com [date] Hattie McDermott General Manager Tumblelong Books 43 McCarthy St Sydney NSW 2000 Dear Ms McDermott Re: Administration Assistant position I am writing to apply for the position of Administration Assistant at Tumblelong Books as advertised recently on SEEK.com.au. I am a self-motivated Administration Assistant with a Certificate III in Business Administration and almost five years of office experience. I am seeking to advance my skills and experience while completing my university studies in Communications, and I’m very interested in joining the team at Tumblelong. I am currently working as an Administration and Sales Assistant at Angst & Robins, where I perform many of the same tasks required of the Administration Assistant at Tumblelong: preparing purchase orders and invoices, updating the store’s book and email database, conducting inventory and liaising with suppliers, as well as serving customers. During my time at Angst, I have taken the initiative to improve their cataloguing system and update the customer database. Prior to this I worked as a Receptionist at Bob’s Realty, where I performed general reception and administrative tasks as well as customer service. Through my experiences at Bob’s and at Angst I have developed my administration and customer service skills, learned to work as an integral member of a team, and maintained the highest standards of professionalism. I have also developed my computer skills, becoming familiar with company databases and honing my typing abilities. I have strong communication and interpersonal skills, a friendly and professional manner, and an excellent command of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. I also have exceptional attention to detail, with an ability to prioritise and juggle multiple tasks. As someone with a great passion for reading, I would love the opportunity to work at an iconic bookstore like Tumblelong. I would also welcome the chance to apply some of the skills I’ve learned in my communications studies to help with preparing the monthly newsletter. My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further. Yours sincerely, [sign here] Penny Chapman
