The United Nations remains one of the most coveted NGOs to work with. A majority of job seekers are always watchful for career opportunities with the organization.
“I had seen the NGO advertising for a Logistics Assistant opening. Unfortunately I did not get the job and I am guessing that the problem would have been my cover letter. Would you please give me an idea of how it should be?” writes Caroline Wambui a Logistics professional.

RE: APPLICATION FOR THE LOGISTICS ASSISTANT POSITION
I hereby forward my application for the position of Logistics Assistant as advertised on XYZ Newspaper on the 16th November 2014. As a highly skilled Logistics professional who is well organized, I am confident that I offer the best combination of skills to contribute to your organization.
In the past 6 years I have accumulated vast knowledge in the administration and logistics field in diverse environments. As a logistics officer at ABC Company I was responsible for the initiation, processing, monitoring, reviewing and follow up actions related to administration department. I was also tasked with updating the company’s website and managing and developing internal databases.
I have also provided continuous general office support services such as operational travel plans for the board members. My strength lies in the ability to implement and design business strategies and follow up with stakeholders for payments to vendors.
I would be pleased to be considered for the position within your organization as I believe I could put these same skills, integrity and respect for diversity in your organization.
