Dear Sir or Madam,
I would like to apply for the position of front office receptionist advertised in this Sunday's Beaconsfield City Journal.
I have recently graduated from Beaconsfield Magnet School, where I participated in the dental career academy, earning a 3.75 GPA. As the secretary of the senior class, I created a system for organizing records for the school's fund-raisers, which saved nearly five hours each month in administrative time.
Last summer, I worked as a receptionist at the Beaconsfield Family Dental Clinic, where I greeted and interacted with minor and adult patients. In this position, I learned to schedule appointments and handle insurance billing under the direction of the office manager.
I hope you will agree that my skills would be an asset to your practice. If so, please call me at (333) 555-5678. I am available for an interview at your convenience.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
