Dear Mr. Bennett,
As a long-time admirer of [Elementary School X’s] well-rounded student experience, I am excited to submit my application for the Office Assistant position posted on [website.com]. I had the pleasure of speaking with [Name Surname] at the Annual School Event in New Jersey, and he suggested that I contact you about the job opening. In this cover letter, I will elaborate on my motivation and qualifications required for this job opportunity.
To shortly introduce myself, my name is [Jason Reed] and I was pleased when hearing about the available job opportunity. Last week, I attended the Annual School Event together with my nephew. I noticed the student diversity and [Elementary School X’s] ability to speak the language of the children, families and community it serves. I am thrilled about the prospect to participate and serve your community. I believe that my proficiency with Microsoft software tools, attention to detail and interpersonal skills will contribute to the daily clerical duties at [Elementary School X].
During my voluntary service at [Institution], I got praised by other volunteers for my ability to get along with people from different nationalities in a culturally diverse environment. I am convinced that a positive attitude is key to getting along with people. Furthermore, I have gained functional/technical skills with web-based applications and Microsoft Office Tools such as: Word, Excel and PowerPoint. My proficiency level can be qualified as: ‘advanced’ according to Microsoft’s table of education competencies. Therefore, I am confident about my ability to maintain student records as well as entering data into the online student information system.
While my attached resume provides an outline of my abilities, I would welcome the opportunity to further discuss how I can contribute to the day-to-day work at [Elementary School X] in a personal meeting. Please let me know if you have additional questions. You can reach me via [Email Address] or [Phone Number]. Thank you for your time and consideration.
