Dear Sir or Madam:
PC Financial is a technologically advanced, customer service oriented financial institution and I am excited to formally apply for the position of Senior Administrative Assistant, as advertised in the Mississauga News. Enclosed is my resume for your review.
Upon graduation in Business Administration from Sheridan College, my career has focused solely in the financial services sector working as an exceptional administrative professional for major nationwide institutions and smaller but expanding credit unions.
I actively manage my career, seeking expanded duties and challenges in each appointment. In my current position as Administrative Assistant with Meridian Credit Union, I played a key role in establishing the credit unions presence within the community as Meridian expanded into the highly culturally diverse Mississauga location. During the acquisition of Hepcoe Credit Union by Meridian, management assigned me to the Transition Team tasked with ensuring a smooth and seamless transition of existing clientele.
My most recent achievement is the attainment of my Qualified Administrative Assistant designation, earned through Distance Learning – University of Toronto and administered in accordance with the Association of Administrative Assistants.
I am now actively seeking a progressive position where I can utilize the extensive knowledge gained from this academic accreditation coupled with my significant experience in financial services administration. I believe the position of Senior Executive Assistant at PC Financial would provide such an opportunity. I know I have all the prerequisites to deliver success and bring value-add to your expanding financial institution.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to your call.
