Ms. Sally Field

Dear Ms. Field:
I am a top contender for Program Support Assistant position currently available at ABC Company as my previous commissions are very relevant to your job description. I am positive that I will be a good fit to your organization.
During the previous seven years, I have had the opportunity of providing administrative support to big conservation programs associated with WWF – USA and Green Peace including Power X, Yeti Find and Carbon Print, all of which have met success since their inception. I would now like to bring this experience to ABC Company – I have studied excerpts from the research paper that Mr. Holden has written for Total Wipeout and I am excited at the thought of working on this project with him.
Since startup operations (and administrative and clerical work associated with them) are my specialty, I am confident that I will be able to kick start the Total Wipeout in a manner ensuring early success. My resume is attached for your review.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
