Attn: Robert Biltmore

Dear Mr. Biltmore,

I am responding to an ad I saw in the local newspaper, The Laurel Dispatch, for an Executive Assistant position. 

I have attached my resume for you to review, and you will be able to see I am more than qualified for the job.

While I have had great jobs in the past that have been on an executive level, I have always seemed to get in with a firm that has went under or downsized. 

The biggest concern for me is to not only find a job that pays well, but also find a firm that is well established. 

I have done some research on Brown & Smith PLLC and must say I am pleased by what I have found. 

This firm has a strong history for success and has great tenor among the employees. I feel with my executive level of experience and my drive to succeed that I would be a great addition to your firm. 

I am available to work the hours specified in the ad and any overtime that might be needed. 

Please review my resume and see how my qualification would match your needs in a position. 

I can be reached at 123-890-7659 to discuss this position further. It would be a privilege to work for such a wonderful firm.
