LETTER OF APPLICATION
I was so excited when my former coworker, Jude Ebube, told me about the opening for an Office assistant in your Wuse offices. I am a graduate of Law and I would love to help the company achieve its mission of solving problems and getting people out of problems.
I’ve worked for small companies during school breaks and I relish the opportunity to wear many hats and work with the team to succeed. In my latest role as an Office assistant at Freedom chambers, I saved my employer thousands of Naira by implementing a self-scheduling system for the customer service reps. I also learned web design, time sheet coding, Microsoft office and perfected my Excel skills.
Attached to this letter is my resume with the consideration and hope to speak with you soon about how I can be of service.
