Dear [name of hiring manager],
I'm writing because I'm interested in the personal assistant position you posted on [job posting website].
I saw that you're looking for someone who can provide support for you and your team, and I think that's where I can help.
I have a lot of experience in providing administrative support for small businesses, having worked as an assistant for a small publishing company for the past three years. I've always loved working at small businesses because they give me the opportunity to really get to know my clients and form lasting relationships with them. I think that's why I've been so successful in this role—I'm able to form quick bonds with the people around me, and they appreciate my ability to hit the ground running and get things done without needing too much direction.
I'm also incredibly organized, which helps me get things done quickly and efficiently. I've had several jobs where the person I reported to was very busy, and their time was valuable—so when I was able to quickly get things done for them, it made their days easier and more productive.
I love working with people, making sure they're taken care of, and helping them achieve their goals!
Please let me know if you have any further questions!
