Dear [hiring manager],

I’m writing to express my interest in your job opening for an administrator. I’ve worked as a receptionist, personal assistant and administrative assistant for most of my career, and have a wealth of experience to draw on. With a calm head and meticulous eye for detail, I work hard to ensure that all duties are carried out to the highest standards and within the allotted time frames.

In my recent position as an administrative assistant at a law firm, I provided solid and essential back up to key positions and projects. This proved to be a great opportunity to work as part of a team as well as independently, with a focus on delivering quality administrative support on a continuous basis.

During my time at Cisco Systems I also dealt with reports and presentations to present to department heads, identified and solved problems within the database in addition to being responsible for the maintenance and updating of employee records.

I’m organised, efficient, and a good communicator. I feel I would fit in at your company, and would work tirelessly to prove myself an asset to your team.

I’ve attached my CV for your review. I’d love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss my candidacy further. Thank you for considering me for the position. I look forward to hearing back from you!
