Dear Mr. Smith,
I am applying for the Administrative Office Internship opportunity. I found out about Crittenton Women’s Union from a staff member named Kristen Blocker.
I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Fitchburg State College. I have over three years of administrative support experience. I have advanced software knowledge in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Outlook while I have beginner software knowledge in Microsoft Access. At the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, I used Microsoft Word to create foreign trip reports in which I revised and added missing information. After creating them in Microsoft Word, I converted foreign trip reports into Adobe PDF documents.
I would appreciate the opportunity to come in for an interview to discuss the Administrative Office Internship. I will contact you in a couple of days to schedule an appointment for an interview.
