Dear Mr. Smith,
A BBA degree, 20+ years of experience in the banking industry, and a comprehensive understanding of probate law—that’s what I have to offer your organization. After a rewarding career at Michigan National Bank, I find myself in the position of seeking new career opportunities. My resume is enclosed for your review.
My recent experience at the bank has been in the Personal Trust/Probate department. In my capacity as Trust Officer, I was responsible for personal trust, estate, and investment accounts. I settled estates, coordinated the administration of legal documents, and directed the disbursement of funds according to the trust and/or applicable laws (among many other things). This comprehensive background would be a distinct asset to your firm.
In addition to my fiduciary responsibilities, I took a personal interest in every client. There were cases that necessitated my intervention to arbitrate differences between feuding beneficiaries. Sometimes I was called on to schedule doctor appointments or arrange for home repair. But serving the client (or the client’s estate as the case may be) was always my top priority.
When you review my resume, you will see that I also managed the corporate trust division and provided administrative support in the employee benefit area. This experience adds to my versatility.
Thank you for taking the time to review my credentials. I hope you feel a personal meeting would be beneficial; I am available at your convenience. If you have any questions—or when you are ready to schedule an interview—please give me a call at 555-555-3333.
