Dear Mr. Thompson,
I would like to apply for the position of administrative assistant as advertised by your company in the Fairfield Time and am enclosing my resume for your scrutiny and action. After completing my diploma, I have been working as the head of the Secretarial Pool for the past 4 years.
As the Head of the Secretarial pool, I have had the chance of demonstrating my abilities as the top secretary in the firm for two consecutive years. Apart from excelling in Microsoft Office, I also excel in other database software that is commonly used today. Speed, accuracy and efficiency are my forte and work very well under pressure. Apart from the regular secretarial skills, I also possess knowledge of legal terms and procedures, which I feel will be of great help in this position.
I would like to thank you for considering my application and would like to state that I am available for an interview. Please feel free to call me at (203) 333-5555 at your convenience.
