Dear Elizabeth Ross,

I am writing to express both my enthusiasm and qualifications for the administrative assistant position you have advertised on hiremymom.com.

My name is Colette Massarelli and I live in sunny Central Washington where I am currently a stay-at-home mom to two sweet little babies. I absolutely love and value my decision to be at home, but am truly a “type A” personality who also loves to work and stay busy. I am looking to keep my skill set and resume current while bringing in supplemental income for my family. After reading the advertised job description for the administrative assistant position open at your event company, I am excited to apply to be a part of your team.

As my attached resume will convey, my past work experience has held a primary focus in providing exceptional administrative support. I currently work part-time and remotely as an assistant and social media manager to the owner of Mon-Fleur Design, a small floral and design company located here in Washington State. I am responsible for a number of tasks, including but not limited to managing her calendar, setting appointments, scheduling meetings with potential clients, organizing and managing her design inventory, managing all social media accounts for the business and aiding in budgeting and cost analysis. I genuinely enjoy supporting Monica Banze, the owner and designer, in administrative and social media tasks to help her grow her business and clientele. It makes me feel so fulfilled to help her with the type of tasks she needs done but doesn’t necessarily enjoy doing so that she has more time to focus on building face-to-face relationships and honing her design work which is what she truly is passionate about. Monica works extensively with brides and wedding vendors so I have direct experience within the wedding event industry.

Previously, while living in North Dakota for a short time, I worked as an accounting clerk and administrative assistant at Maverick Logistics, a transport company, where I executed AP reports and served as an assistant to all the department heads. After this, I worked for Agri Industries, starting as a customer service specialist and assistant the President of the company as well as the three Senior Engineers. I was responsible for managing their travel, calendars, and meetings while simultaneously performing office manager duties for the entire company. I later transferred to the Sax Electric department to be the administrative assistant to the Master Electrician and execute all invoicing for the department.

In addition, I have various other skills that I am positive will make me an excellent addition to your team. Through both my past work experience and college education in English, I have mastered effective communication skills, both written and verbal. I am resourceful, creative, energetic, and am always ready and eager to learn something new. I truly have a passion for being organized, detailed and knowledgeable in whatever task I am faced with. Also, I absolutely love meeting and working with new people. There is always something new to learn from others and I am genuinely passionate about serving and assisting my employers and their clients.

I am certain I can be a valuable addition to your team and I look forward to discussing the position in more detail with you. I can be reached anytime at 509.859.6022 or by email at colettemassarelli@gmail.com. I hope to hear from you soon and I thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Colette Massarelli
