Mr. Trey Rainey
HR Manager
Education Management Corporation
210 sixth avenue 33rd floor
Pittsburgh, PA 15222

Dear Mr. Rainey:

Your advertisement in the New York Times captured my attention for two reasons: one – exactly the same job description as my previous job with greater room for growth and two – I recently read an article in the Business Success Stories Journal about EDMC’s (Education Management Corporation) celebration of more than 40 years of delivering quality higher education to the served communities. Keeping in view my seven years of experience in the similar position, I am applying for the full-time Receptionist post - 11000.239.12 in EDMC.

These are the post relevant activities that I am exceptionally trained at performing efficiently:
Answering phone calls, directing callers to appropriate departments and/or employees
Creating a welcoming environment by greeting  guests and customers
Managing front desk functions for example; mail and package delivery handling, arranging conferences, keeping executive appointment calendars, etc.
Scheduling candidate interviews for HR department’s hiring managers and managing new hire onboarding process
Delivering quality customer service
Maintaining company phone directory and organizational chart

Understanding that the receptionist is the first point of contact between the organization and client/customer/guest, I have always been friendly with people, having a welcoming demeanor due to my strong ability to maintain quality interpersonal professional relationships. I intend to utilize my experience and learn more from EDMC’s diverse employee culture.

Thank you very much for considering my application for the Receptionist position in your organization. I would be grateful to get the opportunity to meet with you in person or by telephone for discussing your requirements and how I can fulfill them. In case you need any supplementary information, please do not hesitate to contact me on my cell (020) 123-1234.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Anthony Hennel
