Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name

I am writing to apply for the position of Receptionist as advertised in the March 1, 2010 Victorian Times. I believe that my experience as a receptionist and office assistant with farm supply companies would be an asset to your company.

When reviewing your company website, I learned that Maxwell is a company I would feel very capable working for. My past work experience has taught me how to work pleasantly and efficiently with people, even when working under pressure. I work well in team environments and can juggle many tasks at once. My word processing abilities are quick and accurate.

In addition to secretarial training, I have taken a variety of night school courses in switchboard operation, Windows 7, Word and Excel spreadsheets.
I also have Level 2 First Aid, which has proven an asset in industrial settings.

I am very interested in becoming a receptionist for your company and would like to meet with you at your convenience to discuss this opportunity.
