Manager HR
Tomball High School
3738 Everglade Road
Tomball, TX 11510


Dear Mr. Bernardo:

I came across the advertisement of Tomball High School regarding a new branch opening in downtown area and am wondering if there is a School Secretary position would be available there. I moved to Tomball three weeks ago after serving as a school secretary at McAllen High School, Dallas for six years. I believe that if provided with a chance, I have much stamina and expertise to contribute to your school.

As a highly responsible individual, I have been coordinating secretarial and clerical services for my previous place of work on a continuous basis. I possess a friendly and positive demeanor and have demonstrated capabilities in answering phones, welcoming and directing guests, copying materials and typing and organizing correspondence. In addition, I am well versed in maintaining filing systems accurately.

Presently, I am looking for a unique opportunity where I can exercise functional supervision over the clerical staff while providing the best administrative services to the school office.

I am a complete amalgamation of experience and qualifications which are key contributors to an environment conducive to academic professionalism. I believe that a meeting between us will provide me with a more profound understanding of your specific secretarial needs and you can also judge what I offer.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Truly yours,

Amanda Krust
