Mr. Adam Doe
United Nations [Location]
Dear Mr. Doe:
I was very interested in job announcement for the position of Administrative Assistant. Based on my education, skills and experience, I feel that I would be an outstanding candidate for this position. Along with a post graduate diploma and three years of hands-on experience in administrative tasks, I have the capability to become a central member of your team.
Through my work as an Administrative Assistant for The University of Ontario, I have built a strong record of noteworthy attainments in increasingly more responsible management positions during my short career. I have a demonstrated ability to handle all aspects of general office coordination; maintain office calendar to organize work flow and meetings; answer telephones and transfer to right team member; carry out universal clerical duties such bookkeeping, copying, faxing, mailing and filing; open, arrange and deal out incoming mail, including faxes and email. My attached résumé gives more details about my specific skills pertinent to UN job requirements.
As an enthusiastic candidate, I would like the opportunity to meet you and discuss this position. I will call you in the week of June 28 to follow-up. Should you have any additional questions, you may reach me by phone number or email. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time and consideration.
