Dear Mr. Matthews:

As an avid ABC123 Retail Company customer, I was excited to find your advertisement on for an office manager for your new district headquarters. I couldn’t wait to submit my resume, which is enclosed for your review.

I currently serve as office manager for a busy financial services firm (XYZ Company), where I supervise a team of 12 employees and coordinate all office functions. My strengths in improving office systems and building a top-performing clerical team have earned repeated commendations and formal recognition from the company CEO.

Your new headquarters would benefit from my administrative and managerial skills. I offer:

  • Ten years of experience leading front- and back-office administration and serving as a trusted assistant to senior executives;
  • Well-honed office management skills, including hiring and supervising clerical staff; scheduling, calendaring and event planning; preparing reports; administering records management systems; and developing Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations;
  • The ability to anticipate executives’ needs, follow through on all details and tactfully handle sensitive situations; and
  • Computer proficiency, including a solid foundation in MS Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access), Lotus Notes and QuickBooks.

I am confident that I would be able to organize and manage your new headquarters to create a smooth-running office. If you agree that my qualifications and passion for your company would make me a strong addition to your team, please call me at (555) 555-5555 or email to set up a meeting. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.
