Re: Executive Assistant | Job Ref. #55555 | Advertised on Monster
Dear Ms. Smith:
Many people view executive assistants as glorified secretaries, and while there’s nothing wrong with secretarial work, my view of this position is different. Yes, I perform secretarial tasks (quite well!), but I see my role as a key business partner¾vital to the success of the executive team, department and company.
I am your secret weapon, working diligently to ensure goals are met and daily operations run smoothly.
For the past five years, I have served as executive assistant to the regional VP of a major insurance company. Previously during my employment with a regional credit union, I rapidly advanced through roles as an office assistant and secretary to become executive assistant to the SVP of HR.
These experiences allow me to wear the many “hats” required to be a value-adding executive assistant. I’ve earned repeated accolades for my strengths in…
- Managing multiple high-priority projects with competing deadlines
- Creating reports, spreadsheets, budgets and PowerPoint presentations
- Coordinating executive travel, schedules and calendars
- Handling sensitive and confidential matters with discretion
- Planning and overseeing logistics for meetings, tradeshows and events
- Assisting with payroll, new-hire orientation, benefits enrollment and other HR functions
My qualifications are reinforced by credentials that include an AA in business; an in-progress BA in HR administration; and an advanced command of MS Office, SAP and Oracle.
You may reach me at (555) 555-5555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a meeting. Thank you for your time.
