Re: Interest in the Job of Administrative Assistant I write this letter with the purpose of showing my interest in the job of Administrative Assistant at the University of Global Health Equity. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Agriculture from the University of Rwanda and I am currently pursuing my Masters in development Studies at the same University. I am interested in the job because I believe that through working with the University, I will be able to develop my experience in Administration and also as a development student I would love a chance to be part of a team that is interested in social justice and health care equity.
I am the right candidate for this job because for three years I worked with Vision for a Nation Foundation and while their eye care program was just in its pilot phase, I did everything from administration, logistics, registration, finance, and coordination with different stakeholders. To me this was a very demanding job that required good organizational skills, multi-tasking and dedication.
Today the VFANF Program has a strong partnership with the ministry of Health and I believe I contributed much to its success. Also, while still a student at campus, on many occasions I was assigned by IFAD (International Fund for Agricultural Development) to organize workshops for them and I led teams that coordinated everything from booking hotels for participants to planning the agendas of the workshops.
Such good communication skills and ability to work as a team are required for the smooth running of this job. Sir/ Madam, if given a chance, I am confident that my character, professional knowledge, work experience, motivation and organizational ability will help me to perform the job effectively. I therefore thank you in anticipation of your positive response.
