Dear Mr Smith,
My former colleague Joan Brown informed me that you are seeking to hire an office
manager. I worked with Ms Brown at Acme and have 10 years of experience as an
administrative assistant. I have long admired XYZ Partnership and would be
honoured to work for your company.
As you can see from my CV, I have performed many administrative duties in my
previous positions at Acme and Ajax. At Ajax, I facilitated the company's transition
from handwritten to digital records. That work paved the way for my move to Acme,
where I assisted the director of innovation in tracking the development of new
products. I helped introduce the company's workflow management system, which
enabled Acme to cut the average development time of its software upgrades from 18
weeks to 12 weeks.
I would be pleased to speak with you to discuss the details of the office manager
position. Thank you for your consideration of my application.
