Dear Mr Burn,
I am very interested in the position of Administrative Assistant for Broad and Allen advertised in the Weekly Times on 30 January 2007.
The skills and qualifications you seek match my experience in this area:
- I spent two years as Administrative Assistant in the Prospective Students Office of Monash University and am experienced with using a number of reporting tools and databases including Excel, Access, Lotus Notes and Crystal Reports.
- I assisted the General Manager of Saturn Satellites for two years providing administrative support, diary and appointment coordination and managing all travel and accommodation bookings for his busy and fast-paced schedule.
- I confidently work alone and in teams - in both situations I always complete tasks on time and enjoy assisting others to ensure that their tasks also come in on time and on budget.
- I am currently completing a part-time (evening) diploma of Human Resources at Northern Melbourne Institute of Technology. I have used the knowledge and skills gained from subjects including Managing Staff Development and Performance Management to assist in the coordination of staff training and performance reviews.
Enclosed is my resume for your review. I believe I am an excellent candidate for this role and look forward to meeting with you to discuss this position further.
