Dear Ms. Hines:

I have recently been made aware of a Technical Assistant vacancy in your company and am contacting you at this time to be considered for this position. My background in administration and technical assistance in diverse industries has allowed me to develop the skills needed to be successful in this role and I am certain these skills will be an asset to your company.

Having compiled and reviewed many technical documents and data, I have built strong analytical and writing skills that have proven to be beneficial when communicating with corporate executives, project leaders, department heads and vendors. These skills have also shown to be effective when dealing with customers whenever needed.

I have applied my knowledge of Microsoft applications and database management to prepare spreadsheets, technical drawings, flowcharts and other supplemental materials needed for corporate meetings and project planning. Also, I have developed an understanding of various research methodologies used in the gathering of data in areas of engineering, medical research, and education.

As a prior Technical Assistant, I have also been responsible for training staff on equipment and software, arranging meetings and providing technical support for both internal and external teams. Database management has also been a main responsibility, and I have fulfilled this role with minimum supervision.

Below are a few highlights of my career that I feel emphasize my qualifications in assuming the Technical Assistant position in your company:

Oversaw the editing and proofreading of all technical documents for Olive Branch Technologies

Created and maintained database of medical research information for Unity Med Works

Arranged and managed technical support schedule for Workhorse Inc.

Assisted in gathering budget, cash flow and income projection information for Rev Services

Awarded Associate of Applied Science in Administrative Support Technology from Tidewater Community College

I have worked with many types of data entry software, such as SmartSoft and Entrypoint, and possess the ability to type 70+ WPM. Due to my extensive background in technological companies, I have developed a strong understanding of technical terminology, documentation, and drawings.

I welcome the opportunity to discuss my skill set and learn more about your company and this Technical Assistant position. Please do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an interview.

Thank you for your consideration.
