Dear Sir or Madam:
PC Financial is a technologically advanced, customer service oriented financial institution and I am excited to formally apply for the position of Senior Administrative Assistant, as advertised in the Mississauga News. Enclosed is my resume for your review.
Upon graduation in Business Administration from Sheridan College, my career has focused solely in the financial services sector working as an exceptional administrative professional for major nationwide institutions and smaller but expanding credit unions.
I actively manage my career, seeking expanded duties and challenges in each appointment. In my current position as Administrative Assistant with Meridian Credit Union, I played a key role in establishing the credit unions presence within the community as Meridian expanded into the highly culturally diverse Mississauga location. During the acquisition of Hepcoe Credit Union by Meridian, management assigned me to the Transition Team tasked with ensuring a smooth and seamless transition of existing clientele.
My most recent achievement is the attainment of my Qualified Administrative Assistant designation, earned through Distance Learning – University of Toronto and administered in accordance with the Association of Administrative Assistants.
I am now actively seeking a progressive position where I can utilize the extensive knowledge gained from this academic accreditation coupled with my significant experience in financial services administration. I believe the position of Senior Executive Assistant at PC Financial would provide such an opportunity. I know I have all the prerequisites to deliver success and bring value-add to your expanding financial institution.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to your call.
Eva North, Q.A.A.

I am writing to you as a fellow graduate of Hofstra University (class of 2002) and would sincerely appreciate any insight you could provide me into McClain Companies. I have been working in sales for almost five years, and I am now looking to transition into corporate human resources at a company such as yours.
Although successful in my sales career, I have realized the aspects of my work I find most rewarding are all in HR-related functions. The following offers a few highlights of my qualifications:
- Solid foundation in HR affairs: As senior account executive, I have been responsible for a number of HR functions, including recruiting, interviewing, hiring and training new employees. A quick learner of complex concepts and legal issues, I am eager to broaden these competencies.
- Dynamic communication style: I am adept in building relationships, consensus and a shared sense of purpose. I am known for my ability to quickly establish trust with employees, mediate disputes and motivate others into action.
- Experience in corporate training: A constant throughout my sales career has been my passion for the design and delivery of staff development programs. Comfortable and experienced giving both large and small-group presentations, I have conducted hundreds of training seminars for diverse audiences across all organizational levels.
If you know of anyone within McClain Companies who might be looking for someone with my qualifications, I would be very grateful for your referral. Thanks in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide.
