Dear Mr. Barry Bickerstaff:
As a detailed oriented, focused and innovative administrative professional, I offer 15+ years of broad experience supporting senior executives as a “right hand” partner to their success. Combining key strengths in office technology, communications, planning and the ability to perform in fast paced, time sensitive environment, I am now seeking the opportunity to utilize my expert skills as an Administrative Assistant with your organization.
I am a proactive problem solver with strong business acumen. In the past, I have held roles with a wide range of duties such as administration of corporate travel, calendar and events management, document creation and expense management. A sample of key contributions includes:
- Streamlined travel planning through implementation of a new online booking tool, increasing cost savings and efficiency.
- Created and published client presentations, proposals, and corporate employee manual.
- Implemented an updated system to ensure coverage of the main switchboard.
- Instituted new inventory management process for company stationery, resulting in 25% cost savings.
- Planned and executed corporate events such as retreats, nationwide sales meetings and regional staff meetings.
More than an administrative assistant, I believe in serving as a business partner whose mission is to make the executive staff’s daily routines more organized and efficient, leading to overall corporate success. I welcome the opportunity to discuss my offerings with you in a more personal setting and included my contact information above for your convenience. Thank you in advance for your consideration and I look forward to our conversation.
