Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
I saw your advertisement for an investment assistant and wanted to offer my credentials. As a junior assistant for a growing real estate investment firm, I am familiar with the skills required to meet the needs of a busy sales professional.
Among the technical skills I possess are Excel, PowerPoint and Microsoft Word, which allow me to maintain all customer communication and any charts that are needed, as well as design effective presentations. My advanced organization skills mean that I can easily handle a multitude of projects at once, which I know is vital in a fast-paced organization such as yours.
As a dedicated team member, I am willing and able to go above and beyond to meet deadlines and ensure that our team and company goals are met. In addition, my professional appearance and phone manner ensure that I will help create the best impression for your clients and prospects.
Attached is my resume, along with references of two coworkers. (Since my boss is unaware I am job hunting, I appreciate your confidentiality and understanding of why her reference is unavailable.) I look forward to meeting you in person to find out more about the duties of the position and how my experience makes me the ideal candidate!
Thank you for your time and I look forward to your call!
