To the Hiring Manager,

I recently learned of your need for an Administrative Assistant through a job advertisement posted on the internet dated August 29, 2019. Please consider this an application for the said position.

I completed an Office Assistant program in Herzing College in May 2018 where I was an Honour Student as well as an Excellent Student of the Year Award recipient.

Prior to this refresher course, I also graduated from a Bachelor of Science Degree major in Psychology in the Philippines.

I am presently employed as an Administrative Assistant in Eaton Industries – a Winnipeg satellite for an engineering/ power company based in the US.

I am listing below 3 of my qualifications which demonstrate my ability to match the requirement you are in need of:

1.I am an experienced Administrative Assistant; my training and ability to do the job go as far back as my work experience in the Philippines which includes a telecoms industry setting.

2.Supporting executives, department managers and staff has always been a key responsibility.

3.I easily adapt to change and always look for opportunities to learn.

I would like to discuss further how I may best fill the role you advertised. You may reach out to me through my email: or call me at my mobile no.: 204-***-****.

Thank you and warm regards,

Cristina Cabundoc
