Dear Mr. Taylor:

Through this letter, I would like to express a strong interest for the position of a Receptionist at Shamrock Trading Corporation.

I have worked in various front desk roles for eight years; my last commission was at Paychex Inc. where I successfully accomplished many tasks including coordination of multiple telephone lines, file and records management and acted as a bridge between various departments within the company.

As a meticulous worker with exceptional organizational skills, I have been called upon to provide my input in several important projects that the company has undertaken over the years; the Worthy Warrior Project earned 20% above its targeted revenue owing my involvement in it.

I am a self-directed individual and possess the ability to work independently. I have been especially adept at providing exceptional customer services and I believe strongly in the cliché “first impression is the last impression.” Having said this, I have always made sure that I am amiable to customers and visitors even in the most distressing of situations.

My strong communication skills and energetic personality is definitely a good fit to your requirements. I believe that it would be pertinent to discuss the possibility of my working for your company in person. I may be reached at (333) 333-3333 if you would like any further information from me. I look forward to meeting with you in person.

Thank you very much.


Sincere regards,

Kimberly Basset
