“I am a highly-organized, driven and objective focused manager who is able to get the most out of the people I am responsible for. I am passionate about my work, and I understand the success of your organization is dependent on people like me, doing their jobs professionally and to the highest standards achievable.

Q2. Why do you want to work for our company as an Office Manager?

SUGGESTED ANSWER
