At my current company, Redford & Sons, I am valued by the CEO and his staff as a critical support pillar for the team, keeping meetings, papers, travel arrangements, and office items organized at all times. I have spearheaded the effort to “go digital” for almost all planning and paperwork, increasing office efficiency to the point of saving $3,000 per year in contracted labor expenses. Allow me to highlight three bullet points from my resume that I believe demonstrate why I am the perfect candidate for this position:

  • Trained two assistants during a period of company expansion to ensure attention to detail and adherence to company policy
  • Maintain utmost discretion when dealing with sensitive topics
  • Typed documents such as correspondence, drafts, memos, and emails, and prepared 3 reports weekly for management.

My resume goes into more detail about my daily job duties and achievements during my tenure as an administrative assistant at two companies. However, I believe that these bullet points demonstrate that I have the ability to perform the major duties, and train others in how to perform in this role effectively, should the need arise.

Dear Mr./Mrs./Ms. [Hiring Manager’s Name],

Please accept my enclosed application for the position of executive assistant. I found your job posting on [Website Name], and I’m pleased to say that my skills match your requirements perfectly. According to your job posting, you need an experienced executive assistant who can schedule meetings, prepare agendas, and take care of daily issues without supervision.

In my current role as an executive assistant at PaxWay Incorporated, I handle all of these duties, and more, with great capability. Allow me to point to three bullet points from my resume that demonstrate both my abilities and achievements:

  • Perform a variety of accounting activities, such as preparing between 10-20 check requests, expense reports, purchase orders, and invoices a week
  • Handled all domestic and international travel reservations, cutting company’s travel expenses by 12%
  • Organized 3+ monthly meetings and their logistical elements (scheduling, preparing the facility, organizing handouts and/or binders for attendees, etc.)

I also spearheaded the movement to “go digital,” which has proven to be a significant efficiency boon for the company. I am frequently praised for my ability to handle complex tasks and solve problems without requesting input, but also maintain an awareness of when input may be desired. In short, as an executive assistant, I am efficient, attentive, and competent. Finally, I have all the basic skills necessary for the role. I type at 80WPM, am familiar with CRM systems, and have a mastery of the MS Office Suite.

Date: 1st May, 2009.

John Smith,
National Accounts Inc.,
257 Park Avenue South,
New York, NY 12345-6789.

Dear John,

Regional Bank, the firm I worked with for the last fifteen years, was sold at year-end and merged with another financial institution. As a result, my job was eliminated but I was asked to remain and assist in managing the personal loans. The position was temporary, and relocation was required to make it permanent. I am looking forward towards opportunities locally here in New York. I’m looking for some advice and counsel from people I know and trust.

I’d like to continue to be a account administrator in a financial services company (bank, savings and loan, credit union, insurance company, etc.). I’m good at administration and teamwork. I’ve also managed data processing tasks of all volumes. I like being a part of a dynamic organization, and I am looking for that next opportunity.

You’re a successful person with friends who are also successful. Perhaps you, or someone you know, are cognizant of a firm that needs someone with my capabilities. If so, I’d appreciate your giving them a copy of the enclosed resume, and I’d like their name so that I can contact them personally.

My earlier job has been exciting, and I’m sure the next opportunity will hold even more promise. I’m glad about the prospect for change and I hope that you can help me make sure it’s a positive change. I’d appreciate your thoughts and ideas. Thanks for your help.

Sincerely,

Richard Anderson.
