Chicago Craft + DIY Sarina Cover Letter
Hi Heather and the Chicago Craft + DIY team,
I found your company’s mission extremely inspirational! I’m a mom of two girls, ages 6 and 10, and currently work as a project manager handling high volume marketing and data projects for million dollar revenue accounts. Twice a week I’m able to work remotely and the experience has been beyond eye opening. As someone who tries to maximize my time, the avoidance of 2-3 hours of traffic on those days has been life altering and my new years goal is to be able to work remotely 5 days a week.
I have five years of experience managing WordPress for universities and non profit agencies. I’m also an avid writer (both published and self-published) and would enthusiastically write blog posts as well. In terms of my knowledge about crafting I once won an art award in painting as a teen and am able to crochet and sew. I’m tech savvy and personable – enjoying the detailed work of creating processes with cutting edge tools as well as building human relationships via email and phone across distances.
Over all, I believe that Chicago Craft can benefit from my abilities in the following areas:
â€¢ Expertise of JIRA, Basecamp, Slack, WordPress (HTML + CSS), Adobe, Google & Microsoft Suites
â€¢ Experience managing complex projects, across internationally distributed teams, for high profile clients
â€¢ Tech savvy, outgoing Jane-of-all-trades with a solution oriented attitude
â€¢ Belief that customer service and communication are the backbone of success
â€¢ Enthusiasm for the written word and possessing a crafting ethos at heart
I’m a quick learner looking for a long term, remote opportunity. I welcome the chance to speak with you!
