Re: Front-Office Receptionist, Advertised on Monster
Dear Mr. Simpson:
After reviewing your job announcement for a front-office receptionist, I was struck by how closely my qualifications match your requirements.
For the past 3 years, I have worked as a front-office receptionist at XYZ, Inc. (a medical device company), where my duties are very similar to those outlined in your position opening:
- Warmly greeting and assisting customers and visitors
- Providing prompt, courteous call handling, routing and screening within a busy office setting
- Assisting HR with maintaining updated company rosters and phone lists
- Using MS Office to develop reports, templates, spreadsheets and presentations
- Performing clerical assignments (e.g., copying, filing, emailing, web updates and records management)
I believe that past performance is one of the best predictors of future success. Here are excerpts from my most recent review at XYZ:
“…Christina is a tremendous asset to our team in her role as front-office receptionist…energetic, enthusiastic and upbeat…outstanding communication and customer service skills…highly organized and efficient…her computer skills have been a real asset to the department…reliable, flexible and willing to pitch in when needed…a team player and outstanding employee. We are all going to miss her!”
— Penelope Cho, Supervisor, XYZ, Inc.
Next month I will be relocating to Sometown, PA, making it impractical for me to remain at XYZ due to the 100-mile commute. I have given my employer 30-day notice of my resignation, and am actively seeking employment in what will soon be my new hometown.
I am available to interview in person with just a few days notice, or immediately over the phone or via Skype (Skype ID: christinanicholslive). I hope to hear from you soon.

I’m writing in regards to the job for a medical receptionist currently open at your company. With eight years of experience in the field and a degree in medical administration from the University of Memphis, I believe that I’ll make an excellent addition to your clinic.
You said in your ad that you’re looking for a courteous, conscientious employee with a pleasant phone voice and a keen eye for detail. I meet these requirements in spades:
- I’ve received three “exceptional”s and one “above average” performance review during my last year of employment.
- I consider it a serious responsibility to take care of patients and treat them the way I would want to be treated. I always answer the phone with a smile on my face, and I extend care and compassion to everyone who walks through the front door.
- I’m frequently requested by name when it comes to scheduling appointments and making payment arrangements. Patients ask for me specifically.
- While still remaining polite, I’m also capable of playing “hardball” when it comes to things like ordering stock and negotiating with vendors, suppliers and cleaning crews. I’ve reduced overhead by 8 percent since joining my current company.
In addition to my strong interpersonal skills, I’m also gifted behind the scenes. I’m quite adept at handling modern office technology, and I’ve trained more than one employee in using our data management and bookkeeping software. I have a firm grasp of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and QuickBooks, and I’m also comfortable working on both Windows and Macs.
No one chooses to get sick, but they have a choice in what doctor they come to see, and that’s where I pick up the baton and run with it. I strive to make every appointment a pleasant experience. My philosophy is one of dedication, patience and hard work, and I try to put it into practice every day of my career.
If you’d like to discuss my qualifications in person, I’d be more than happy to come in for an interview. I can be contacted by phone any day of the week. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to your call.
