Ashlie Woods Cover Letter
April 18, 2018
Dear Ashlie Woods:
My name is Jaclyn Kivelin, and I believe I would be an excellent fit for your Virtual Assistant position. I currently stay at home with my daughter, so my schedule is very flexible, and I would be able to dedicate the time and passion necessary to help Wildhearted Retreats thrive.
I find your business (passion, rather) to be incredibly unique and inspiring. As a military child, and now military spouse, I have moved a number of times in my life, and it has required me to learn how to constantly re-center myself.
Becoming a mother has been my most recent joy and challenge, and is allowing meâ€”once againâ€”the opportunity to define â€œmeâ€ in terms of my new life and surroundings.
Stemming from my psychology background, helping myself and others understand life and find joy in it, has always been important to me. I used this passion when teaching high school, a particularly unique time of life-growth for adolescents. As a teacher, it was paramount to studentsâ€™ success to FIRST help them find their self worth, THEN tackle any academic issues. I am a whole-self teacher and parent, believing that emotional stability and health are important to overall success.
I have some business experience, working at a local coffee roaster in Washington State for 2 years. This was a small, privately owned business; customer service and personal interactions were at the heart of their success. The company motto was, â€œHelp people, make friends, have funâ€. The management team allowed me many opportunities for growth beyond clerical reception duties and retail sales. I was able to help with the launching and running of an online sales platform, edit company publications, offer customer service insights at company meetings, and much more.
As a military spouse, I have used my creative talents to produce personalized battalion gifts for spouses, events, and fundraisers. I often helped to create flyers, and various design projects. Although I consider myself a design novice, I do have an eye for design and the capacity to learn much more as the need arises. It is something I enjoy, and often do on the side for friends or personal projects.
I am a hard worker, very efficient, and genuinely desire to help people. I would love to speak with you more about my experiences and your needs, and discuss whether I would be a good fit for your business. If you have any further questions or inquiries, please feel free to contact me via phone or email at your convenience.
Jaclyn M. Kivelin
