Subject: application for a School Secretary position.
Dear Mr. Dominguez,
I am interested in working as a school secretary for Blooming Buds School and this application is written for asserting my suitability for the mentioned position.
I have completed an associate degree and hold three years of experience in this similar position. In these three years, I have assisted students, parents and the administrative department in solving their queries. It is my initiative and extra attention, that no request or query made to me is unfulfilled. For this reason, any visitors or parents who come to the school like to meet me first, even if I am not in the school or out due to some official work.
I am not only skilled in operating fax machines and copiers, but can also do minor repair and maintenance work. In addition, I am trained to work with computer and any tailor-made applications and MS Office, including the Internet. I have maintained and recorded hundreds of records of students both in hard copies and soft copies. Besides these qualities, I can handle any types of multi-line phone system, assist in the daily operation of school, and multi-task.
The enclosed resume will explain my educational and employment history in great detail. I am confident of assisting your team in the daily operation of your school. You can reach me at 713-415-8536. Thank you for your time.
