Studying PR and marketing at Boston College has been one of the most rewarding experiences anyone could hope to have. No two days have been alike, and I’ve learned a tremendous amount. I would be leaving my home of these past few years with a heavy heart, if I weren’t confident that bigger and better things await. A perfect example of one such opportunity would be the Office Assistant position with [Company Name].
My name is Linda Smith and I am hoping to convince you that I should be your choice.
I believe I am just the right person for you!
The way I see it, there are several factors that suggest that I am the right person to contribute to your continued success.
First of all, my previous work experience has given me a stable foundation to build on when it comes to working in service and organizing and coordination. My job as Sales Clerk has been particularly important when it comes to developing the skills necessary to succeed as an Office Assistant.
My educational background is also a good fit for the demands placed on your new office assistant. In addition to everything I learned in my classes as a PR and marketing major, studying at Boston College also gave me a large network and valuable experiences of a different kind.
There is much to be said for experience and education, but most vital to succeeding at a job are someone’s personal qualities. I always strive to interact with others in a manner that is authentic and friendly and I have natural sense of calm. I would also describe myself as flexible, mature and judicious.
A cover letter can say a lot about a person, but certainly far from everything. I have my fingers crossed in the hope that I will get to meet you to tell you more about myself, and how I might contribute to the future success of [Company Name].
