Dear Sir or Madam:

PC Financial is a technologically advanced, customer service oriented financial institution and I am excited to formally apply for the position of Senior Administrative Assistant, as advertised in the Mississauga News. Enclosed is my resume for your review.

Upon graduation in Business Administration from Sheridan College, my career has focused solely in the financial services sector working as an exceptional administrative professional for major nationwide institutions and smaller but expanding credit unions.

I actively manage my career, seeking expanded duties and challenges in each appointment. In my current position as Administrative Assistant with Meridian Credit Union, I played a key role in establishing the credit unions presence within the community as Meridian expanded into the highly culturally diverse Mississauga location. During the acquisition of Hepcoe Credit Union by Meridian, management assigned me to the Transition Team tasked with ensuring a smooth and seamless transition of existing clientele.

My most recent achievement is the attainment of my Qualified Administrative Assistant designation, earned through Distance Learning – University of Toronto and administered in accordance with the Association of Administrative Assistants.

I am now actively seeking a progressive position where I can utilize the extensive knowledge gained from this academic accreditation coupled with my significant experience in financial services administration. I believe the position of Senior Executive Assistant at PC Financial would provide such an opportunity. I know I have all the prerequisites to deliver success and bring value-add to your expanding financial institution.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to your call.

Sincerely,

Eva North, Q.A.A.

At my current company, Redford & Sons, I am valued by the CEO and his staff as a critical support pillar for the team, keeping meetings, papers, travel arrangements, and office items organized at all times. I have spearheaded the effort to “go digital” for almost all planning and paperwork, increasing office efficiency to the point of saving $3,000 per year in contracted labor expenses. Allow me to highlight three bullet points from my resume that I believe demonstrate why I am the perfect candidate for this position:

My resume goes into more detail about my daily job duties and achievements during my tenure as an administrative assistant at two companies. However, I believe that these bullet points demonstrate that I have the ability to perform the major duties, and train others in how to perform in this role effectively, should the need arise.

Dear Mr./Mrs./Ms. [Hiring Manager’s Name],

Please accept my enclosed application for the position of executive assistant. I found your job posting on [Website Name], and I’m pleased to say that my skills match your requirements perfectly. According to your job posting, you need an experienced executive assistant who can schedule meetings, prepare agendas, and take care of daily issues without supervision.

In my current role as an executive assistant at PaxWay Incorporated, I handle all of these duties, and more, with great capability. Allow me to point to three bullet points from my resume that demonstrate both my abilities and achievements:

  • Perform a variety of accounting activities, such as preparing between 10-20 check requests, expense reports, purchase orders, and invoices a week
  • Handled all domestic and international travel reservations, cutting company’s travel expenses by 12%
  • Organized 3+ monthly meetings and their logistical elements (scheduling, preparing the facility, organizing handouts and/or binders for attendees, etc.)

I also spearheaded the movement to “go digital,” which has proven to be a significant efficiency boon for the company. I am frequently praised for my ability to handle complex tasks and solve problems without requesting input, but also maintain an awareness of when input may be desired. In short, as an executive assistant, I am efficient, attentive, and competent. Finally, I have all the basic skills necessary for the role. I type at 80WPM, am familiar with CRM systems, and have a mastery of the MS Office Suite.

I am eagerly anticipating having a follow up conversation with you about how I can help make the lives of your company executives easier. Please feel free to contact me at any time.

Best,

[Your Name]
