Dear Mrs Smith
Application for the temporary post of Office Assistant
I enclose my CV as an application for the above post. As I am just about to break for the summer during my business administration degree, I am keen to obtain some work experience and feel sure that my skills and abilities would make me an ideal candidate for the job.
You will see from my CV that I undertook some office work on a voluntary basis with a local charity last summer and gained valuable experience as a result. My duties included filing, reception, setting up and maintaining spreadsheets, emailing and word processing. I have excellent communications skills, an organised approach and the ability to follow processes and procedures efficiently.
I have an outgoing personality and work well with others, even when under pressure. I am confident that I could make a solid contribution to the work in your office and that I could develop my skills even further.
I would really appreciate the opportunity to attend for interview and look forward to hearing from you. I am available to start right away and can be contacted on (phone number) or at (email address).
Thank you for your time.
Good luck with your job hunting and let us know if we can do something else for you.
