Office Jobs Cover Letter Examples
« on: December 27, 2012, 08:52:27 PM »

Writing a cover letter for the job role in the Office industry.

If you are interested in working in the Office industry you will usually have some office skills, this could be administration, answering the telephone, dealing with the post, filing, photocopying etc.

There are many different roles within the office industry such as:
  • Office Junior
  • Receptionist
  • Administrator
  • Secretary
  • Personal Assistant
  • Office Manager
Whatever role you are interested in pursuing opens up different avenues within the office industry but employers will be looking for someone who is good with computers, can type, has some experience of working in an office environment and understands the basics of how an office works.

Working in an office is an important role however senior the role because without an efficient office running the behind the scenes part of a business then it would be disorganised chaos.  Employers will be looking for people who are organised in their work and can multi task, doing a number of things at once without getting too caught up in the pressure.

People who work in an office are usually the eyes and ears of the business and usually know more about what’s going on than any other department, this is important to a business.

If you go into a company as an office junior you will gain valuable experience from other people who did the same job as you when they started and it is very important to learn as much as you can and take it on board to be able to process well within the office industry.

Usually the process for applying for jobs is through sending a CV and covering letter direct to a company but you could be required to complete an application form either as part of the application process or prior to any interview. It is important to follow the correct procedures for each business as some companies will only accept an application form and if this is the case they generally will not look at your CV so there is little point sending it to them.

Example cover letter for a Finance Job:

Dear HR / Recruitment Manager,

Application for the vacancy of Administrator

I was very interested to read about the Administrator vacancy within your organisation, and have enclosed my CV for your consideration.

I possess a good range of office experience, including secretarial work, diary management, data entry, reception, spreadsheets and setting up and maintaining databases. I have also arranged meetings, dealt with invoices and other accounts information and taken minutes at formal meetings and I can work confidently and efficiently with the Microsoft Office software.

I understand the importance of office procedures and am confident that I can provide a reliable and accurate service. I am an effective team worker who can develop good working relationships with colleagues and managers alike.

I would be pleased to attend for interview at your convenience to allow me to discuss my experience and qualities further. My full contact details can be found on my CV.
