Dear Ms. Smith:
Having an outgoing personality has been my best asset to get along well with other people. Spending my last year in the university as a student intern in a prominent US company has honed me enough for the work after college. I am confident that I have enough knowledge and skills that will fit in the business industry.
I saw your ads in your website and I would like to apply as the executive assistant in the marketing department of the JSA Business Associates. As a new graduate, I consider myself as exceptional because of being a cum laude in the university where I finished my undergraduate studies. I supported myself during my college years as part-time office clerk in a company where I also completed my internship.
Please consider my application by reviewing my attached resume and certificates. I am looking forward to your positive response. Thank you.
