Dear Ms. Caldwell:
I am writing to express my interest in the Administrative Aide position with Youth Services of Southern Wisconsin, Inc.
(YSOSW). I learned of this position through BuckyNet, University of Wisconsin-Madison’s online internship and job
database. Youth Services of Southern Wisconsin’s mission to provide “innovative services dedicated to strengthening and
improving the lives of youth, their families and our community” is one that I find very appealing, and I am very excited
about the possibility of joining your team. I am confident that my passion for youth services, combined with my
educational background, will allow me to thrive in this role.
I am currently a junior in the Human Development and Family Studies (HDFS) major at the University of Wisconsin-
Madison and plan to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in May 2015. I recently started taking several courses within my
major that have sparked an even greater interest to enter a field, which provides services and advocacy for children and
teens. Many of my courses have focused on familial relationships and how various circumstances can influence
development, behavior, etc., and I see this internship with YSOSW as a prime opportunity for me to learn the inner
workings of a nonprofit agency that deals specifically with at-risk youth.
In my two years as an Office Assistant at ABC Company, I gained many valuable skills that directly relate to the
Administrative Aide position. For instance, I am very skilled in providing exceptional customer service, answering phones
in a polite manner, and directing calls to the appropriate individuals when necessary. I have frequently been complimented
on my good people skills and my ability to make guests feel comfortable by supervisors and clients. Through this position,
I also strengthened my attention to detail and was able to review and proofread a variety of documents for publication.
Lastly, I was responsible for many office functions including filing, making copies, and regularly updating our contact
lists. I pride myself on being a very punctual and organized person, and I look forward to applying my administrative
skills in a nonprofit environment where I can help YSOSW stay organized and accurate with our information and records,
while creating a friendly environment for our constituents.
I would appreciate the opportunity to have a conversation with you about how my skills and experience could benefit
Youth Services of Southern Wisconsin, Inc. Please feel free to contact me at 608-555-9292 or email@example.com to
schedule an interview. Thank you very much for considering me for this opportunity.
