Dear Hiring Manager:It is with great enthusiasm that I submit my application for the position of medical secretary. As an administrative medical professional with over six years experience, I know my diverse skills and qualifications will make me an asset to your company. As you will see in my attached resume, Ive built my career in a variety of roles and industries, mostly in small companies where I was not just the receptionist but also an administrator, technology go to, bookkeeper and marketing specialist. Im not only used to wearing many hats, I sincerely enjoy it; I thrive in an environment where no two work days are exactly the same.In addition to being flexible and approachable, Im also a fanatic for details particularly when it comes to presentation. One of the more important projects I was involved in was coordinating a 200-page grant proposal: I proofed and edited, the narratives provided by the project head, formatted spreadsheets, and generally made sure every line was letter-perfect and that the entire finished product conformed to the specific guidelines laid out, the result; A five-year, $1.5 million grant award for the local chapter of The Autism society. I have also been fortunate to run several multimillion dollar portrait studios as well as being responsible for the hiring, training and mentoring for 12 to 15 associates at a time. I believe in applying these same levels of attention to detail to all tasks whether they are securing grants or prepping the materials for a top-level meeting or as routine as making sure that patients and clients are happy and feel at home in the office.Last but certainly not least, I want you to know that Im a passionate when it comes to health care. I have always been interested in the field of psychology. I come from a background that psychology has plaid a significant role in. I have a 12 year old son that has Autism, and since his diagnosis I have been immersed in the psychology of this disorder. I have Bachelors in Psychology and Sociology and I am currently taking all online classes in Medical Office Management that I hope in 3 to 4 years will allow me to attend nursing school.In closing, I am thrilled at the possibility of being involved with your company and all that it can offer in furthering my career and education. I would love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss the value that I can bring to your office. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.Warmest regards,Jennifer N Johnson
