Dear Mr. Oppenheimer,
I am a highly trained administrative assistant with a background in public relations, and I am excited for the chance to work for your company. I have a history of working with manufacturing firms, and I know I could step in and make an immediate impact on your company. My objective as an administrative assistant is to fully support business professionals with their organisational, travel, and marketing needs, and my expertise aligns with the qualifications needed for the position at Oppenheimer Tools.
To give you an example of a past administrative accomplishment, I secured a feature article at the London Gazette which focused on my former employer’s charitable work. This above-and-beyond support helped with PR, marketing, and hiring. Whilst my on-the-job experience has afforded me a well-rounded skill set, including first-rate business writing and planning abilities, I excel in the following areas:
- Developing databases and filing systems to handle large quantities of information.
- Handling public relations inquiries and cultivating favourable media connections.
- Managing correspondence via telephone, email, fax, and post.
- Creating advanced Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations.
In the course of my work, I have regularly provided meeting support and managed office operations. Additionally, I have an engaging manner and have regularly trained new employees on office procedures in a fast-paced manufacturing firm. I am extremely enthusiastic about Oppenheimer Tool’s focus on employee relations and would love the opportunity to contribute to your employee and public relations goals.
My CV details my additional work experience. I appreciate your time and will follow up to request an appointment to discuss how my experience and background meets your needs.
