Baby Meets Science cover letter
Dear Alyssa Marshall,
I saw your job posting for a Community Builder on HireMyMom.com and I am very interested! My skill set and interests would be a fantastic fit for your needs.
I have spent the last four years working for Paulaâ€™s Choice Skincare as a Senior Client Services Consultant. My essential job functions were customer service-related (phone calls, emails, live chats, and Facebook messages/page interaction), but I also had many additional regular tasks which included managing projects and writing and editing content. I can provide outstanding references from my previous supervisor and coworkers upon request.
I absolutely love Facebook as a tool to connect with others, and in reading what you wrote about your position, I think you and I would connect well. My favorite part of Facebook right now is a mom group I joined about a year ago; I regularly participate in that group, and there are many members who would tell you that my discussion style is thoughtful, science-based, research-oriented, and kind. Iâ€™d be happy to provide references for that too if you want me to!
Here are my answers to your questions:
1. I seek to eat, and provide my family with, a macro-balanced diet that leans heavily on vegetables, fruits, and whole grains for its carbohydrates as much as possible. A typical meal will include lean meat or poultry, cooked vegetables, a grain such as brown rice or quinoa, and some healthy fats (nuts cooked with the vegetables, a cheese-based sauce, that kind of thing).
2. I have taken the full Myers-Briggs test, and my type is INFJ. Iâ€™d love to know what yours is, too, if we are to work together.
3. What a great question. The first thing that comes to mind is my belief in the importance of teaching consent and bodily autonomy from birth. Lots of parents see no harm in â€œtickle attacksâ€ or â€œnow go give Grandma a hug and kiss,â€ but we are teaching our son that itâ€™s okay to assert his preferences for what happens with his body even when he is a toddler, and that others should respect his wishes.
Another thing that comes to mind isnâ€™t so much a belief as it is an example of my commitment to what I do for my childâ€™s health: I have been an exclusively pumping mom for 13 months and counting. He was a NICU baby and never latched properly, and I wasnâ€™t ready to give up on my plan to breastfeed. I firmly believe â€œfed is bestâ€ and have nothing against formula-feeding, but breastfeeding was something I knew I wanted to continue for my son, even when nursing directly from the breast didnâ€™t work out.
Iâ€™d love to discuss this position with you further. Please feel free to contact me via email or if desired via phone. Thank you for your consideration!
