Dear Sir or Madam:
I am interested in the Administrative Assistant position you have available. As a former employee of the NYC Department of Education, I am confident in my abilities to take on new and exciting opportunities. I am seeking a position that will combine my previous experience and my education, but will also offer possibilities to continue to learn and grow as an individual.
While working in the NYC public school system I had to take on many roles to help our school grow and become established as a successful learning institution. While wearing many hats, I had to learn how to prioritize tasks on a daily basis as we were a new school and everyday brought on new challenges. As our staff and student enrollment grew, there were many opportunities to learn new responsibilities, which helped shaped me to become a more efficient employee and taught me to meet new challenges head on. In a fast paced environment, I had to learn to manage many different scenarios with little or no direction at times. Whether I succeeded or failed at any new task at hand, I always came away with the knowledge of experiencing something new and how to handle situations that I hadnâ€™t previously had experienced before. I think one of the things that makes me outstanding is my constant drive and determination to strive towards making sure any task I take on is done in a timely and efficient manner. Along with my motivation, I am generally considered a go to person who can make sure the job gets done. I have prided myself on my abilities to learn new things with every role I have had in the private and public sectors of my employment history. I have worked in many different industries and my experience has made me a well rounded employee who can be trusted with any task that I am given.
I am attaching my resume for your review and hope to hear from you soon, should my qualifications meet your needs. I can be reached via cell phone (347) 245-6120 or email: email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you kindly for your time and consideration.
