Administrative Cover Letter Sample

The cover letter is a little more personal than the resume. This is the place to put anything additional the employer should know. If you just moved to the area, or have special training, you may want to put that in the letter. 

However; you don’t want to get too personal. In closing, always make sure to give them an invitation to call you and discuss the position further, as this will show you are serious about a position with their company.
