City, State Zip



Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing you today to express interest in employment with your company for the office manager position. I am very interested in becoming a member of your team. I have a strong background in marketing, management, administration, sales and customer service. I possess exceptional organizational and administrative skills as well as excellent communication and human relations skills that I feel will be a great asset to your organization. I have dual degrees in Sociology and Criminal Justice. I am currently working towards both a Masters in Business Administration and a Masters in Psychology. My education and training better prepare me for tasks that lie ahead. It has allowed me to gain knowledge and understanding in a vast variety of areas crucial to this type of work environment.

I am currently employed with Verizon Wireless as a Senior Financial Specialist. While employed with Verizon Wireless, I have consistently exceeded all goals set forth by my department. I was employed with Tribute Properties from June 2003 through January 2005. While I was employed with Tribute Properties, the properties I managed maintained an occupancy percentage well above average for the Wilmington market. The organizational, marketing, management and administrative skills I have obtained and demonstrated will greatly enhance future endeavors. I was also employed with Phillips Management Group for one and a half years. This position also created a foundation for future positions I will hold.

I understand there will be things I will have to learn, but I know I am ready, willing and able to succeed if given the opportunity. I have many personal experiences which I am sure can be utilized. I am also an extremely fast learner, good with people, very responsible and dedicated to my work, as well as being open to new experiences. I hope you will review my resume and contact me to set up an appointment for an interview. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
