Dear Ms. Brown:

My exceptional skills in performing efficient secretarial work combined with my experience as a clerk at the Family Health Lab makes me an excellent candidate for the position of a Clerk at ABC Labs.

Recognizing the fact that a clerk is usually a jack of all trades, I tried hard to get expertise in all facets of clerical work. Some of my skills include; typing agendas for meetings, attending, recording and transcribing minutes of meetings, processing outgoing mail and distributing incoming mail, greeting visitors and answering phones. I have been known to perform all these with responsibility and skillfulness.

Furthermore, I have a profound ability to provide administrative support to the office and my effective organizational skills assisted me in performing these duties diligently. I possess the talent to compile copy and file records of office activities and business transactions appropriately. I have received commendation for my excellent work many times as I work diligently to meet deadlines and to provide excellent quality of work.

I would like to explore the possibility of my working for ABC Labs and will call your office after one week to set up a meeting time. If you need to contact me before that, I am available on my cell phone at 000-777-8888.

I genuinely appreciate your time and consideration.
