Dear Ms. Anyone:
Please accept the enclosed resume in application for the special projects assistant position as advertised in the (note where you hear about the job). I understand your office offers exceptional resources to business owners, and I would welcome the opportunity to work within your organization.
As a recent graduate of Bogus University, I am keenly interested in putting my research, writing and analytical skills to work in the area of local community business development. I have lived in GenericTown for the majority of my life, and I have a deep understanding and appreciation for the unique characteristics of the local area. Through my post-secondary education, I developed strong research skills, and I have been complimented many times on my writing style.
While teaching English overseas to non-English speaking students and with a non-English speaking supervisor, I quickly developed clear, concise communication. My work style could best be described as focused and analytical, with the ability to manage multiple projects and responsibilities. I am dependable, flexible and maintain a positive outlook.
In addition to the specific education, abilities and experience listed on my resume, I have strong interpersonal and organizational skills, and I am committed to achieving high standards of quality in my work.
Thank you for taking the time to review my resume. I am available at your convenience for an interview.
