A couple of words from your future executive assistant

My name is Linda Smith, and I am currently working as Assistant at [Current Employer] in Tampa. I have been with my current employer for six years – a time which has offered exciting opportunities and professional growth.

I do, however, feel that the time has come for me to look for new challenges and take the next step in my career. For this reason, I was delighted to read about the Executive Assistant position at [Company Name].

I’m convinced that this job would suit me well and that I, in turn, would be a great fit for the job.

I would like to highlight three main qualities that I believe make me the right person for this position.

The first would be my experience. During my six years at [Current Employer], I was able to cultivate my interest in manage information flow and act as the point of contact. This, in turn, allowed me to develop new skills in this area – skills that I would like to hone further, as a member of your team at [Company Name]. Furthermore, I feel that my experience in customer care and organizing has contributed significantly to my overall development.

Secondly, I would like to highlight the fact that my educational background meets the requirements you have for the executive assistant position. I have Associate degree in PR and marketing from Jacksonville University and I make it a priority to stay up to date on the topics related to my field of work.

Last, but certainly not least, I think that my personal traits and abilities make me the right person for this job. I tend to feel empathy toward the people around me, and am interested in exploring perspectives different from my own, and I know that my ability to easily adjust and course-correct when the situation so requires has been appreciated by my previous employers.

Furthermore, I am communicative, and socially skilled in my professional role.

I hope that this brief presentation has given you an idea of who I am, and what I can bring to [Company Name]. I feel strongly that I would be able to meet your expectations, and look forward to being called to an interview so that I might introduce myself further.

Sincerely,

Linda

How did we create this cover letter?

The examples in this list are created in our Cover Letter Generator, which you find here. The structure behind these texts is the proven rhetoric disposition that was invented in ancient Greece more than 2000 years ago. They say wine gets better with age, well, that doesn’t really go for the rhetoric disposition. It was brilliant in the beginning, and it is still brilliant.

Its main parts are the following:

a) Introduction
Spark your reader’s curiosity! Write something that makes the recipient remember you and want to continue reading.

b) Background
What is it that made you want you want to do what you do? What are you currently working on? What are you looking for?

c) The statement of the case
Your statement is, of course, that you are the perfect match for the job.

d) Argumentation
This is your time to shine. Describe why you are perfect for the role. Adapt the text to the most important parts of the job described in the ad. Try to find examples of what you’ve done that prove that you meet the specific requirements.

e) The conclusion
You have the opportunity to be creative here – feel free to finish up with a “call-to-action”, that they really should meet with you. It could also be a brief summary or any other creative idea that you come up with, something that makes the recipient want to take the next step with you.
