Dear (Personalize Whenever Possible):

I saw your post on Craigslist for a receptionist and wanted to apply for the position.

As a recent high school graduate of (name local high school), I am eager to start my career in a business administration setting. I was involved in a variety of high school extracurricular activities, including yearbook and student government, while maintaining a 3.5 grade point average.

My pleasant personality makes me an excellent candidate to make a great first impression on your customers, whether on the phone or in the office. I also am adept at multi-tasking, so would be able to assist with other tasks, such as correspondence, appointment scheduling and confirmation and billing — whatever is needed!

In addition, you will find that I am punctual, flexible and friendly — all important aspects for any member of the office team.

Though I eventually want to move up and gain more responsibility, I understand the importance of learning all aspects of the office environment by starting at an entry-level position and I am eager to establish myself as a valued member of the team.

Attached is my resume and some references from my teachers, as well as two parents whose kids I have babysat. They will attest to how responsible I am and what an excellent employee I would be.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Sincerely,
