BD Contractor Services Cover Letter MJ Swiggard
April 19th, 2016
Dear Ms. Davis:
I am applying for the Administrative/Virtual Assistant position for BD Contractor Services that will allow me to leave the corporate world to focus on my son while holding a part-time position that will challenge me intellectually. I am tired of the emotional stress of leaving my son and working a job that I donâ€™t love. I met a woman at my daycare who shared this website with me and I finally gained hope that I can have it all! This will allow me to be a professional career woman while being a professional mom!
Being a virtual assistant is an all-together experience. Hiring a stay-at-home mom can be very beneficial for any employer because he or she should feel confident in our multi-tasking skills and our ability to utilize every spare second of the day. Not only am I a great mom, Iâ€™m also very experienced and educated. I hold a Masters degree and have a strong background as an executive assistant and researcher. I am most interested in this position in particular because my husband and I intend to flip houses in the future and I am eager to learn about commercial and residential permits and information on the building industry. Being raised in a family of realtors as well as my dad a master carpenter, I already have the basic foundation of permitting and building and I have a strong interest in this field.
I have more than thirteen years of experience in the professional field, working a great deal in independent research requiring initiative, self-motivation, and a wide range of organizational skills. Within these years, four have been spent as an assistant for unique companies. Through this experience, Iâ€™ve enhanced my skills in communicating with clients, employees, and senior officials in an efficient manner and I have developed a keen eye for detail. During my masters program in New Mexico, I worked remotely and relied solely on myself to capture and record intricate data while writing my thesis. I understand the importance of time management and self-motivation more than anyone I know.
I currently hold a dual role as Executive Assistant to the CEO and Office Manager. I organize the daily calendar for the CEO, work directly with board members, and maintain all facets of the office. I have a perfect office setting at my home, which includes a telephone landline for telephone, Internet, printer, fax machine, and computer to function in the right manner. I am very skilled and capable of handling several tasks at once and I am always ardent to undertake new projects. In addition, I am not far from Maryland in the even that I was called to attend an in-person meeting. I am prepared for my new journey and I cannot wait to find the right fit! I can be reached at any time via email firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-999-7089. Thank you.
