Dear HR Manager:

As a seasoned office manager, I am someone who is always thinking about ways to improve things. I enjoy helping to create a well oiled machine that runs efficiently.

I am currently a consultant and I “virtually” manage the office and I have done so for the past three years. I am essentially the “go to girl” when it comes to the company. I assist the CEO with most of the company matters: I handle all of the administrative duties, prepare executive summaries and reports, create marketing material for both print and social media, evaluate and train new consultants, and I reorganized and created new material for the training manual. My communication skills are exceptional and I meet with the CEO often to discuss ways to improve and/or expand the business. I am the one who seldom sleeps thinking of ways to do things better.

Prior to that for six years I worked in a tax office. I am accustomed to working with challenging people. I personally enjoy overcoming the challenges and satisfying the customer to the best of my ability. Working with challenging people has really helped to sharpen my problem solving and analytical skills. I believe that when we face new challenges it’s an opportunity for growth. I am always looking for opportunities to continue growing as a professional and I welcome opportunities to assist my staff members with their development.

I am committed to working long hours if the task requires it. I have studied basic accounting so I am familiar with a P&L, general ledger, and QuickBooks.

I believe that my experience and education would make me an ideal candidate for this position. I am looking for a company where I can use my creativity and ingenuity and we can grow to the next level together.

After reviewing my resume, I believe that we should sit down and discuss how I may use my skills to assist your company to accomplish its goals. I may be reached at the above listed phone number and/or address and I look forward to hearing from you soon. I am available to begin immediately.

Sincerely yours,

Elise L. Barnett
