Mr. Patrick White
Hiring Manager
EFG Company
7534 Alexandria Avenue
Sacramento, CA 86747

Dear Mr. White,

I am writing this letter to express my interest in the Secretary position posted on Having had over ten years of experience in the Sequoia School District in Utah, and thus being accustomed to the great responsibilities of such a position, I am positive that adding me to your administration will reap great benefits. (Must specifically address the position desired as well as the website or publication of the job advertisement.)

During my time at the Sequoia School District, the principal recognized my ability to work alongside her as well as accomplish daily office duties. This produced my greatest strength of being able to multitask. This was very useful throughout the duration of my job because I was able to manage the maintenance of files, conduction of research, organization of appointments and meetings, documentation of matters discussed, and the communication with other staff members very efficiently. My most recent job was at Yensid Studios as a secretary. Working in this fast-paced environment led me to acquire knowledge on corporate laws, on how to serve as a mediator between a company and its clients, and most importantly how to handle stressful situations independently. (State strengths and what administrative tasks helped you to demonstrate those strengths. Must express ability to work quickly as there are many tasks to be done within the given deadlines.)

I am eager to be a part of your team. I would like the opportunity to meet with you. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at (555) 555-5555 or by email at (Give contact information.)

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to scheduling an interview where I can talk more about my interests and qualifications. (Express gratitude for their time.)
