Mr. Mark Anthony
Manager of Human Resources
182 Desert Flower Boulevard
Aurora, CO 76444


Dear Mr. Anthony:

I went on a 3-year break from my professional career to raise my children. Aspiring to return to work, I was exploring opportunities in clerical capacity when I came across your ad for a Secretary position at Banbury’s. I believe that I am well qualified for this position as I have kept in touch with technology even during my break and, of course, have hands-on experience in performing secretarial and clerical tasks.

I can describe myself aptly in three words: dedicated, analytic-thinker and a keen-problem-solver. Utilizing these qualities as well as effective communication and stress management skills, I can contribute efficiently to Banbury’s. Moreover, I possess an online secretarial course that would help me immensely in fulfilling the demands of this job.

My awareness of multiculturalism and inborn sensitivity makes me further eligible for a job with an organization that deals with people of diverse backgrounds. I am excited to put all my efforts for the advancement of Banbury’s! Please feel free to call me if you need any further information from me. I will call you after five days to set up a meeting with you where I will be able to discuss my capabilities further.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
