An organization cannot attain success by the efforts of a single individual. Many people work together to ensure this success which is why people are hired at different positions to perform in different roles. Clerical support is an important part of an organization. People working as clerical support staff are important because they provide services to employees and departments which are essential in ensuring smooth working.

Clerks take instructions from their supervisors or seniors and provide them with a support system on which the latter base their day’s activities. Things as simple as photocopying a document can go a long way in smoothing out work activities for an individual as senior employees do not usually have time to spare for support work. This is the main reason for hiring clerical support staff that performs a number of administrative and clerical duties so that the rest of the staff can concentrate on their work.

Dear Mr. Stellar:

With a set objective in mind to make my superiors’ job easy and increase the efficiency of office, I would like to apply for a clerical support specialist position at Sears Holdings.
