In the January 31 issue of the Chapel Hill Post, your ad mentioned “proven skills”, I believe I have what you are looking for in an administration assistant. In addition to experience in a variety of office settings, I am familiar with the computer software used in your office.
I recently completed a three-course sequence at Hamilton College on Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. I learned how to apply those programs to speed up letter and report-writing tasks. A workshop on “Writing and Editing with the Unix Processor” gave me experience with other valuable applications such as composing and formatting sales letters, financial reports and presentation slides.
These skills have been invaluable to me as assistant to the chief nutritionist at our campus cafeteria (please refer to my resume). I’m particularly proud of the order-confirmation system I designed, which has sharply reduced the problems of late shipment and depleted inventories.
Because “proven skills” are best explained in person, I would appreciate an interview with you. Please phone me any afternoon between 3 and 5 p.m. at (919) 220-6139 to let me know the day and time most convenient for you.

If fluency in written and spoken English and expertise in the use of Lotus computers are the immediate needs of your firm, then I think I am the woman for the job which you advertised in the March 3 issue of the Manila Bulletin. Here are my reasons for believing that I can be help to your company.
I hold a degree in Secretarial Administration which I earned at the University of Sto. Tomas last November. As part of the general education component of my course, I finished computer data processing and programming with hands-on experiences on the Lotus. A year before graduation, I got my first job as secretary to the Guidance Counselor of the Department of Secretarial Science in the University. I worked full time in the office and studied in the evening. My job and my studies did not hinder me from actively joining such campus organizations as the glee club, the dramatics guild and the debating team – an experience which greatly enhanced my keenness in English.
I am single and with pleasing personality. I enjoy working in the trade business.
May I have the privilege of an interview at your most convenient time so that I can demonstrate the value of my services to your firm? Please call me up collect at telephone number ###-##-##.
Very truly yours,
Ms. Ma. Reta Rely

Dear Ms. Downings:
You want retail clerks and managers who are accurate, enthusiastic, and experienced. You want someone who cares about customer service, who understands merchandising, and who can work with others to get the job done. When you’re ready to hire a manager trainee or a clerk who is willing to work toward promotion, please consider me for the job.
Working as a clerk and then as an assistant department manager in a large department store has taught me how challenging a career in retailing can be. Moreover, my AA degree in retailing (including work in such courses as retailing, marketing, and business information systems) will provide your store with a well-rounded associate. Most important, I can offer Wal-Mart’s Iowa Falls store more than my two years of study and filed experience. You’ll find that I’m interested in every facet of retailing, eager to take on responsibility, an willing to continue learning throughout my career. Please look over my resume to see how my skills can benefit your store.
I understand that Wal-Mart prefers to promote its managers from within the company, and I would be pleased to start out with an entry-level position until I gain the necessary experience. Do you have any associate position opening up soon? Could we discuss my qualifications? I will phone your early next Wednesday to arrange a meeting at your convenience.
