Should I double space anywhere on this?
I'm replying to your advertisement in the San Jose Mercury newspaper. I understand that you’re actively seeking to hire a quality Medical Office Assistant. I worked for The Berman Skin Institute as a Front Desk Receptionist for 3 years. My duties included Registering and checking patients in and out, managing chart preparation, answering telephone and E-mail inquiries from prospective patients, and helping manage marketing projects and community events. I also served as a patient advocate throughout office visits; guiding patients through the sometimes emotional issues surrounding the decision to have cosmetic surgery. I am enthusiastic when it comes to building an excellent relationship between clients and my co-workers. I am devoted, dependable, and willing to work hard to achieve my goals. It gives me great pleasure to work within the medical field, so this led me to further my education. I am currently attending Penn Foster Career School, located in Pennsylvania. In my classes I have studied Medical Billing, Insurance Form Preparation, and Insurance Reimbursement. I also studied Law and Ethics in Medicine, Reimbursement Methodologies, Medical Terminology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Medical Information Management and Office Practice. Upon completion of the Medical Office Assistant courses, I am confident that I could make a valuable contribution in your Medical Organization.
Is this a letter ?
I think you should center it around a main point rather than list all your stuff. It should be cleaner with space. Single spaced with no indentation. Formal business language. You have too much stuff. Just list some and the rest hold onto for your interview.
I'm replying...for x position. elaborate....but relate it to their needs...
I have done the following: (again relate it to their need)
I look forward to meeting with you so we can discuss so and so(if you did your research you know what there needs are). I can be reached by email,cell.
Excellent point from J.R. If it IS a letter applying for a job, here is something on "resumés" that you might find useful:
To answer your job about "double spacing." That is good for a VERY short letter so it helps to fill the page. Otherwise, keep in concise and easy to read because if this company gets a lot of resumés, it tends to avoid long, wordy ones! I used to watch HR throw a lot of resumés in "file thirteen" which is the trash can.
