Dear Ms. Brooks,
I was excited to see your posting for an administrative assistant and think I would be a perfect fit for the position.
I have recently relocated to South Portland, Maine from New York, where I worked as an office manager for seven years at NBBJ, an international architecture firm. During my time there, I was instrumental in helping the New York studio achieve excellence in office operations. In addition to being extremely organized, I am self-motivated, able to work independently, and use judgment and critical thinking to apply a high standard of professional excellence to all tasks.
Thank you so very much for your time and consideration; I look forward to hearing from you soon.
