Cover letter writing can be daunting, especially for entry-level candidates who have no idea how to write a compelling one. Since you are applying for an entry-level personal assistant job, it is tricky to convince the employer.
Now all you have to do is to write a three-paragraph letter. In your letter, mention that you have good communication and interpersonal skills, and possess the knowledge of performing all personal assistant tasks. Also, if hired, you will be able to meet and exceed their expectations.
Here is a sample cover letter for an entry-level personal assistant position.
