Dear Mr. Burns,

I’m writing to inquire about the recently advertised Receptionist Position with

My earlier work experience as a volunteer phone bank operator taught me that clear communication while on the telephone is essential. My work as a Candy Striper showed me over and over how being friendly, helpful and polite can make a real difference in a person’s day.

As a receptionist, I know that I would be the first contact many people will have with your company and I take that responsibility very seriously. I am used to working in a fast-paced environment and have a highly developed ability to stay focused when the pressure rises. I am reliable, punctual and have a very good memory for names, faces and phone numbers.

I know that there’s only one chance to make a first impression, and I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to show you how I could make sure the first impression people have of your business is a positive one.

I can be reached at the following addresses and numbers:

  • Address: Hope Full, 1919 Lucky Street, Home Town, IL 60610
  • Cell Phone: 123-456-7890
  • Land Line: 456-123-7890
  • E-mail: [email protected]

My resume is enclosed. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.



Hope Full
