Dear Ms. Worthington:
I read with great interest your job posting on CareerBuilder for an intern.
My experience in office, retail, and academic environments has given me the opportunity to master administrative, time management, and customer service skills. Despite the diversity of the jobs I have held during and after college, all the positions seem to share some common themes. In each role I was asked to interpret and simplify information and interact with others on a regular basis.
As a college student, I tutored several freshman and seniors in multiple subjects while successfully juggling a full-time course load. Over the course of two summers, I helped grade school children improve their language arts and math skills. Through administrative roles at two major New York area hospitals, I streamlined patient record information, automated data storage and retrieval processes, and managed receptionist duties as needed. As a crew member for Fast Food Express Restaurant, I learned how to manage cash register responsibilities, provide excellent customer services, and interact effectively with the public. In addition, I am proficient in the Microsoft Office Suite and I have a degree in Math from SUNY Oswego.
At this juncture I am seeking a new opportunity where I can apply the above-mentioned skills and add value to another organization. My resume is attached for your review and I look forward to a personal interview.
