Self-promotion is what will bring you to your goal in an organization as it is a basic requirement of the new age. Living in a revolutionary age for career self-promotion, you are luckier than your predecessors were. Society’s changing expectations and emergence of technology-rich environments are responsible for this, so you can start thanking your lucky stars.
The days of yore were especially difficult where cover letter writing was concerned because a seemingly well written cover letter for executive administrative assistant had to bear the rigors of the time it took for it to reach the employer, and the time it took for him to get back to you. This is not a problem anymore. The Internet (and even fast methods of mail delivery) is responsible for getting your letter across to a prospective employer within seconds (if the requirements dictate that you email it). Of course, with this ease, the competition has become tougher too. With so many people now aiming to send their cover letters like you are, you need something better than standard content. Communications that are designed to compel the reader to seek you out are “in”.
Cover letter writing is not what it used to be some years ago. The drastic change is perhaps due to the increased competition and the volume of job letters that employers receive. Well-written cover letters come out on top; there are no two ways about this!

• Adept at managing active calendars, handling staff scheduling needs and coordinating meetings
• Qualified to create dashboard reports and distil data from several sources and combine it into meaningful communications
• Familiar with maintaining company branding by reviewing internal corporate communications and suggesting improvements
My resume is enclosed with this letter but no matter how detailed it is, it cannot be a substitute for people speaking with people. That is why I will call your office in a few days to set a meeting. In the interim, I can be reached at (000) 123-3333.
Thank you for your time and consideration
