Subject : Application for the position of [Job]
Dear Ms. (Name),
I am responding to the advertisement as listed in (the Daily Herald) on (Monday) for the available receptionist and switchboard operator position. I was delighted when I came across the add, I have been looking to change places of employment for a little while now but have not been successful in finding the right position where I believed I would be able to adequately benefit the company.
Working for (name of this new company) would be a dream come true for me, your company has an excellent reputation within the (Advertising) industry. I enjoy dealing with customers and customer queries and have always managed to be very efficient in handling any client apprehensions, questions and of course problems, knowing who best to forward them onto. I am also experienced in presenting certain company strengths to potential clients when certain new potential customers inquire about the company business and services.
I have been working in this area for (2) years where I believe that I have been able to refine my ability to direct appropriate questions to the caller in order to make them feel heard, understood and passed onto the correct person rather than simply being passed onto the only available staff member who is not necessarily best equipped for their queries.
I would like to ask you to consider inviting me in for a formal interview, I am confident that you would see that apart from being well dressed, that I have an approachable and welcoming voice as well as efficient problem solving skills and acute organizational skills. I am also able to instill confidence in my voice which would serve to put an existing or potential client at ease that they have reached the right place for all of their business needs.
I have taken this opportunity to enclose my Resume (US) / C.V (UK) and accompanying references.
I would like to also thank you for the time taken today in reading this letter.
Hoping to hear from you soon,
(your name & signature)
