Ms. Francine Hoh
Always Think Comfort
Dear Ms. Francine Hoh:
Please accept my application for the position of Administrative/Virtual Assistant. I found your job posting on HireMyMom.com, and Iâ€™m pleased to say that my skills match your requirements. I have had more than eight years of experience in administrative roles. I am well-versed in all the miscellaneous duties this job entails. I am extremely well organized and have a proven track record working with people from all walks of life.
I have recently been working as an administrative assistant for George Washington’s Mt. Vernon. I am currently helping with the 17th Annual Spirit of Mt. Vernon event being held on October 9, 2018. I am working with database entry; Microsoft Excel; invoicing; writing and editing for program and auction materials; and many other administrative jobs. The event will have about 600 corporate attendees as well as Members of Congress and other important guests. It stands to raise over $450,000 for Mt. Vernon educational programs.
While I do not have any professional experience in the medical field, I do have three children who have afforded me many opportunities to learn the ways of the medical world. I am well-versed in dealing with doctorâ€™s offices, hospitals, billing departments, and suppliers of medical products to name a few. I do feel I am very capable of working in the medical field in the capacity mentioned on the website.
In my previous roles as an executive assistant, I handled all of the duties required for this position, and more, with great capability. I was frequently praised for my ability to handle complex tasks and solve problems without requesting input, but also maintain an awareness of when input may be desired. In short, as an executive assistant, I am efficient, attentive, and competent. Finally, I have all the skills necessary for the role. Due to my experience, I am seeking $20/hour rate.
I am eagerly anticipating having a follow up conversation with you about how I can help make the lives of your company executives easier. I want to be highly effective for you.
Please feel free to contact me at any time.
