Mr. Wade Ethan
Hiring Manager
Moon Inc.
4455 Barnard Drive
Wickliffe, OH 55553


Dear Mr. Ethan:

This is with reference to the position of an Administrative Assistant at Moon Inc. that you have advertised in Sunday’s Class Ads. As an enthusiastic business graduate from Harvard University with well-honed organizational skills, I am confident that I could contribute effectively to achieve your long-term goals.

In summer 2015, I worked as an intern at university’s admin department where I managed both bookkeeping and clerical work successfully. Comprehending the fact that working at this position requires one to be on his feet at all times, I have a passion to work diligently and efficiently continually. Moreover, this opportunity will enable me to utilize my administrative acumen in a more profound manner since Moon Inc. is considered the leader in providing diverse services and is a great platform to work on.

I have enclosed my resume with this letter for your review and would like to meet with you in order to discuss how I may be an asset to your prestigious company. I will call you next week to set-up an interview date. Additionally, I may be contacted at (000) 999-9999 if you need to speak to me before we get a chance to meet.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
