Dear Ms. Bork,
I was glad to see your posting for an Underwriting Assistant on www.monster.com. I feel more than equipped to carry out the responsibilities of this position, and ask that you consider this letter and resume.
I am well aware of the importance of the application review process; keeping current with insurance premiums, exclusions, and details; and evaluating the risk involved in various insurance holders. This is what makes me an excellent Underwriting Assistant. I am also a great assistant and have outstanding office skills in phone communications, office typesetting and documents, and operational needs. I can help you with any underwriting needs you have, and would love the opportunity to tell you more about my background.
Could you give me a call this week to discuss my resume? My number is (555)-555-5555, and I can be reached at that number day or night. Thanks for considering me in filling this opening. I appreciate your time.
