Dear Certner:

I was excited to see your advertisement in the Knoxville News Sentinel calling for an office assistant. In reviewing my resume, you will find my education and experience directly appicable to your assistants needs.

My skills as an office assistant are excellent and I can handle client problems in a diplomatic manner. You will find me an exclusively effectuate individual with distinctions in being spontaneous and communicative. I can maintain records, schedule appointments, and multitask with accuracy. I have extensive experience in Microsoft Word and Excel. Teamwork is another skill I have aquired and one I know is necessary in maintaining a sucessful organization.

I am very interested in becoming part of your team. I will appreciate the opportunity to meet and further discuss my qualifications and your office assistant position. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Jane Doe

    Scroll down a bit to the section that includes cover letters; read through Cover Letters 1, 2, and 3. Then revise your letter.

    Here are a few things I see, but you need to incorporate what the Purdue site (above) recommends, too.

    ~~Make sure the name of the newspaper is in italics.

    ~~The second paragraph is quite vague. Your instructions say to include details, even if you need to make them up.

    Better, but you need to really work on spelling, punctuation, verb tenses, etc., if you plan to successfully enter and stay in the world of work.

    "One of my duties where..."

    I think you mean "were" (the verb) not "where" (the adverb or conjunction).

    But REALLY, since the subject of that sentence is "one" (not "duties), the verb you need there is "was."

    thanks for all the help. Have a great day!
