Ms. Michelle A. Jones,
Manager, Marketing Division
Panama Corporation
9999 92nd Street

Dear Ms. Jones,

I am interested in the administrative assistant position with Panama Corporation that was recently advertised on the University of Illinois at Chicago Student Employment bulletin boards.

The position described is exactly the opportunity I am looking for to gain experience and knowledge in the manufacturing field. My experience as a general office aide in the Financial Aid Office at UIC makes me qualified for this position. I have excellent oral and written communication skills and I am proficient with Microsoft Office. My value for teamwork, coupled with my drive and enthusiasm, would make a significant contribution to your company.

I am enclosing my resume to provide a more detailed description of my qualifications. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at 773-243-1257 or via email at ecasting@uic.edu. I look forward to meeting with you at your convenience.

Thank you.
