It is true that Personal Assistant cover letters are an important part of a job application but, keep in mind, cover letters should complement a resume and not duplicate it. Most people make the mistake of converting their resume into prose and presenting that as a cover letter. This is an absolute no!

Here is an example of a Personal Assistant cover letter for fresh graduates having no prior experience or career changers. You can customize it for your personal use only.

Mr. John Doe
Personnel Manager
Dimont & Associates
25 Some Street
San Diego, CA 87724

 

Dear Mr. Doe:

While browsing the career opportunities on your website, I was intrigued by your Personal Assistant job posting. My motivation and self organization makes me the right candidate for this position and will prove to be an asset for your company. My interest in Dimont & Associates arises from the fact that I am using your products for several years.

I have a demonstrated track record of scheduling meetings, taking minutes of meetings, handling incoming and outgoing phone calls, maintaining documents and information, taking dictations, preparing correspondences and making travel arrangements when necessary. As required, I am able to work in a very high pressure environment and, over the years, I have accustomed myself to work diligently and effectively in such situations. My knowledge of handling daily activities of the employer and office is above par. I am highly skilled in using MS Office Suite in addition to MS Project. My resume is herewith which provides further evidence of my experience and qualifications.

With my above mentioned skills and capabilities, I know I can contribute to Dimont & Associates. It would be a privilege and pleasure to meet with you. May I call you for an interview in the next week?

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

 

Sincerely,

(Signature)
