In that time, I’ve gained in depth knowledge of the various tasks and duties required of office clerks across the spectrum of job roles. I have a wide ranging familiarity with Microsoft Office and other office management software, and have developed a suite of efficiency tools to keep the office organized and on task.
Working as Head Office Clerk at Omega Corporations has prepared me to meet the challenges of a managerial role in professional office environment. I have shown my competency in clerical duties such as filing, typing, answering phone calls, and dealing with public. I simplified the process of retrieving data from the computer systems, maintaining departmental records, and typing daily reports, which allowed the company to save $24,000 in labour cost annually.

I believe that my proven managerial skills and cost cutting abilities, I can contribute effectively to your company and be a valuable employee.

Dear Mr. Elder,
With my brand new Bachelor’s Degree in Employee Development in hand I’m conducting a search. It’s not really a job search but rather a potential employer search. During the course of my education we studied many different companies and their employee development strategies. I feel fortunate to live in the city where Bakas Industries one of the text book examples of excellence operates.
My work experience includes part-time employment as a Time Management program instructor at VO Petroleum where I saw first-hand the best practices and sometimes the worst of the employee development field. I have a strong desire to work in a positive atmosphere of education training and employee satisfaction and everything I’ve read about Bakas tells me you’ve got it figured out.
Even in your employment ads you stress the advancement opportunities available through specific employee training programs. I believe I would fit in with the culture of Bakas Industries and am interested in any entry-level position in training and development. My enthusiasm has been contagious to attendees at the Time Management courses I’ve led and the course evaluations have been over 90 percent positive.
I’d like to bring my enthusiasm to your organization and welcome to opportunity to discuss any possible openings you may have. I can make myself available according to your schedule. Thank you for your time and consideration.
