Lisa M. Johnson

Dear Prospective Employer,
For the last three years I have worked two jobs while simultaneously attending school. My greatest hope in a job position is to grow within a company; this hasn't happened until my recent move across country. Unfortunately my administrative role came to a halt when my store location closed during the fall season. I am on the hunt again, optimistic that I will find what I'm looking for. I have enclosed my resume for further review.

The position I seek would be a full-time, entry-level, medical office position. I am currently attending online school for medical billing and coding, anticipating completion in March 2011. I yearn for the opportunity to develop more skills, and apply my own where they would be appreciated.

I have excellent communication skills and intermediate knowledge of the Spanish language. I am technology savvy, with a great aptitude for retaining new information. My typing skills are 35 wpm/ 10-key stroke, and I am familiar with Microsoft Word and Excel. I am a hard worker and loyal team player, focused on goals and success in the workplace.

I would love the opportunity to meet with you and show how my people-person skills and energetic personality would be great asset to your company. Thank you for considering me. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
