Dear Mr. Spruce:
My varied administrative skills and training experience along with my natural ability to manage and oversee daily work tasks make me the perfect candidate for the position of Administrative Clerk with Amway Cuts. As a highly skilled individual with a diploma in Administration, I am able to leverage my abilities to contribute to the efficiency of your organization.
As noted on my resume, I am highly skilled in performing a variety of clerical duties, record keeping, accounting, budget and time reporting. I have a demonstrated ability to gather and arrange data for a number of reports, mail and documentation. In addition, I am able to update and uphold records by using computers and manual systems and enter and maintain data and records, into computer systems.
While working with Dane Foods, I have acquired great proficiency in managing guests and employees of the office along with performing other tasks such as; ensuring reception area is kept tidy, distributing incoming mail, monitoring supply and inventory and coordinating with the HR department with hiring procedures. Since my duties overlap with some work of the accounting department, I have had the opportunity to devise cost strategies that cut administrative costs by 33% in a very short period of time.
My resume is enclosed herewith which will provide you with more information regarding my skills and capabilities. I will call you in the first week of August in order to set an interview date at your convenience. I will be available at 888-999-9999 if you need more information from me.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
