Dear Ima (reflect the name used during the interview),
Thank you for meeting with me to discuss my qualifications for the Administrative Assistant
position in your department. I trust I was able to show that my skills and experience are a strong
fit for this opening.
My experience reporting directly to several members of senior management will enable me to
work effectively with the Associate Director. As we discussed in detail, I have successfully run
several major projects in my current position and in my community by organizing and
coordinating multi-unit operations. I am sure my flexible attitude and client service experience
will allow me to work positively with your students, faculty, staff, and external clients.
You noted that computer literacy is an important part of the position and my expertise in Word,
Excel, PowerPoint, Visio, Access, and Outlook can meet your needs. I would like to reiterate that
I am very willing to also learn your proprietary computer systems for handling purchasing and
I look forward to hearing from you soon regarding this interesting position.
