Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
I am writing to you today to express my interest in your open position of Administrative Assistant that was advertised on LinkedIn. Our mutual connection on LinkedIn, Michelle Williams with ABC Company, has agreed to serve as a referral for me. I worked for her prior to my current position when she was the Human Resources Director at XYZ Inc. When she left, she endorsed me for my promotion to Executive Assistant for XYZ’s CEO.
I am skilled in providing a wide range of administrative support for various executives, handling meetings, stakeholder and client communications, US and international travel, and expense management. I offer additional value by planning and executing employee recognition events. Examples of my work include:
- Presently managing a busy executive calendar that includes media appearances, business meetings, and industry conferences both in the US and across Europe and Asia.
- Worked with IT to develop, implement, and train executive and administrative assistants on a communications portal that improved executive collaboration companywide.
- Planned and executed social events for corporate offices, including annual summer picnic, holiday party, and monthly social events for 200+ employees.
- Led training program for web-based recruiting software, including creating guidelines/manuals for dozens of users.
I am interested in your opening because I will be relocating with my husband for his work at the end of the month. I am confident I will make a positive impact on your operation and respectfully submit my resume for your review. I would also like to request a personal meeting to discuss your upcoming goals and how I can help you achieve them. I will make myself available at your convenience and look forward to your call. Thank you for your consideration.
Jane M. Smith
