Dear Mr. Smith:
I am very interested in joining an organization such as (name the organization). During my online research, I was very excited to learn about the current opening for a (specify position), and feel my qualifications and your requirements are a good match. For your review, I have attached my resume for your consideration.
I believe that much of my three years of experience gained while attending high school and college would be directly applicable to the role of office receptionist. Please know that I see this position as a foot-in-the door. I believe the receptionist role these days is much more than people realize. It is the hub or the organization and a great opportunity to learn everything about a company and its clients.
In my current position as a legal receptionist with Juror Find, I am fully responsible for handling multifaceted office overflow work under minimal supervision. I work well with the paralegals, attorneys and clients, and am recognized as someone who is efficient, dependable, and who always goes above and beyond what is expected to ensure the job is done right.
My work ethic and attitude have been highly praised, and is the reason why I have received requests from prior employers to return to earlier positions. In fact, I held an earlier position with Juror Find while in college.
I really enjoy my job and everyone I work with. But I do not see my future in law or limited to a customer service position. I have always been interested in the scientific instrument industry, and would like nothing more than to establish my career with your organization. My long ranged goal is to be a part of R&D and national marketing initiatives. I find it very intriguing to be a part of new product developments and launches.
Combined with my academic achievements, volunteer community service experience, and proficiency in various software programs, I am certain I would be an asset to your organization.
If you feel there is a mutual interest, I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your company, the requirements of the position, and how my qualifications would be a good fit.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration of my candidacy. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
