Focus on what’s most appealing about the new job as your reason for applying. At the same time, explain a bit about your background.
I’ve managed a lot of successful projects at my current company, but I’m ready for a new challenge and this position sounds perfect. I have a lot of experience in project management, so when I saw the advertisement for this job, I knew it would be a great match for my skills and experience.
If you were let go from your last job, give a brief explanation of what happened and what you learned. And as always, stay positive!
The company I worked for was relocating to Europe and decided to close my office. I was with the company for 12 years and had moved up from a receptionist to an executive-level assistant, so I really enjoyed working there. I see this position as a great opportunity to use my skills in a new role. I’m excited to start a new chapter of my career.
