I am writing to express my interest in the Travel Abroad Administrator position. I was referred to you by Mike Green, who works as a Student Counselor for your academic exchange department. I have looked into the wonderful work that your company does for students, teachers and lecturers throughout Europe and Asia. I understand that you are looking for an extremely organized, highly motivated and experienced staff member to help with international planning and logistics.
While I could honestly tell you that I have more than 30 years of experience in administration, I think that the most relevant skills and qualifications I have are the ones I have worked to acquire in the last five years as an Administrator for the University of Texas' Counseling and Career Advisement Center. I have extensive knowledge of the application process for international travel as well as the latest training in Microsoft Office, PowerPoint and QuickBooks. I am fluent in Spanish and French, with a competent knowledge of Mandarin and Greek.
While my current position is higher-paid, I would like to stress that I am currently seeking a position with a more diverse staff and creative opportunities within my field. I believe that the position at your company would provide that benefit, and I am open and flexible to salary negotiation.
Thank you for your consideration. I will contact you next week to set up an appointment. I look forward to speaking with you at that time.
