Mr. John Smith

Dear Mr. Smith:
I have heard that having too much experience or having a background that is too diversified can come across as being unfocused or “all over the place.” I would like to think that it is a good thing, and that an employer would see it as getting more value for their investment in an employee.
I agree that it is important to have specialized skills in a given area such office administration, sales, marketing, and information technology. But what happens when you have strong skills in all of the above?
I feel my diverse background has prepared me well to oversee the broad demands of this role, from coordinating workflow activities, managing full-charge bookkeeping activities and supervising a staff to handling special projects, key client relations and vendor contracts and assisting in sales and marketing activities to develop and promote new business at events and online.
If you feel as I do that it is more of an advantage than a disadvantage, I would like to be considered for the position as office manager.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to being invited to interview for the position, as there is more to discuss than what my resume can fully cover.
