Dear Ms Lee,

Re: (Enter Position / Ref here)

I am applying in response to the advertised Executive Assistant position and submit resume for your consideration. I believe the position will enable me to capitalise on my professional experience and allow me to progress in my career and advance within administration in general. The position is an ideal opportunity for me in view of my relevant experience, interest and long term career goals.

As you can see from my resume, I have over fourteen years experience as an Executive Assistant during which time I have amassed solid expertise assisting senior management in daily operations within the media industry. I am currently Executive Assistant at EFGH Media Productions, a post in which I supervise a small office team of five staff and provide comprehensive executive support and office administration. I orchestrate office procedures, manage complex prioritizations and workloads; and handle office supplies among other duties.

Having researched your organization, I am convinced I am an ideal candidate for the vacant Executive Assistant position in view of my education and professional experience. I am tenacious, resourceful, a great organizer and trouble-shooter. I hope therefore, that you will consider my resume and be persuaded of my potential to perform well and make significant contribution as a member of your organization. In the meantime, I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

Yours sincerely,

Annabelle Whyte
