Office Manager Cover Letter Sample 4:

I am writing in response to the advertisement you placed for an office manager in this week’s Star Tribune. Although I am currently employed as an office manager by Big Company I am looking to move on to an even larger office setting in order to further develop my management and leadership skills. As someone with over twelve years of office managing experience, I believe I am uniquely qualified to fill this position. Moreover, I possess the requisite personal and professional skills necessary for success in the position you advertised.

I attended Big Name University from 2001-2005, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration. Since then, I have worked in office settings and assumed increasing degrees of responsibility. You mentioned in your ad that you are interested in finding someone with prior experience working in a large office. In my most recent job I was the office manager for a staff of over sixty employees. During my tenure, my office expanded our business volume by over 15 percent during one fiscal year. I was also able to find enough waste in the budget to trim our expenditures by 6 percent. I hope to bring the same ethic to your staff.

As I’ve written above, I also believe I possess the personal skills necessary to succeed in a job that requires a great deal of interpersonal contact. I take leadership training classes on an annual basis to make sure that I am aware of new developments in management techniques. I believe that a good leader should be approachable, and as an office manager I always strive to have open doors for all my employees. In my current position, I’ve also created a performance incentivization program that has revitalized our business and revolutionized the way that managers and employees interact. I believe that it will be equally successful when applied to your business.

After reading this cover letter and my resume, I hope that you agree with me that we are well-suited to work together. I would appreciate the opportunity to further discuss my skills and qualifications in person. I can be reached at 555-555-5555 or by email at firstnamelastname@domain.com.
