To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing this letter to express my interest in the part-time remote Administrative Assistant position open within your company. For the past nine years, I have worked as a paralegal in the United States Air Force. The last five years were spent as a Law Office Manager where I oversaw the legal operations of 26 personnel. Currently, I sit as a Numbered Air Force Paralegal Manager. In this capacity, I oversee the legal operations of three Air Force Base legal offices in the western part of the United States. As these duties are part-time (Air Force Reserve) in nature, I am looking for another part-time position working from home.

As a paralegal and military member, I feel my attention to detail is my strongest asset. This skill will assist me in proof reading leases and accurately entering invoices. Working for lawyers has required immense administrative skills which include scheduling meetings, researching clients, managing the travel plans and calendar for high-level military executives, editing and drafting e-mail and other correspondence, and prioritizing issues (just to name a few). Additionally, I am a self-starter who seeks to prevent issues by being proactive and focusing my effort on building solid relationships and communicating effectively.

As a former school counselor I have excellent listening skills, strive to help others, and find innovative ways to solve problems collaboratively. I am reliable and always professional in my interactions whether through e-mail, phone, or in person.

Finally, for a period of four years, I assisted my former spouse with his property management company. In that capacity, I oversaw invoices, maintenance requests, and interacted with clients and vendors on a daily basis. I also maintained his schedule and tracked photo evidence using Dropbox.

I look forward to hearing from you and would love the opportunity to be part of your team.
