Hello! My name is Kate Shore, and I am writing in regards to the Administrative Assistant position you posted on HireMyMom.com. I just submitted my resume through the website, but wanted to to let you know a little more about me and my experience. I think that my strong organization skills and my ability to stay focused and work independently make me a great fit for your team.
My background is truly a mix of creative and logical work experiences. I have a BFA in Theatre Design and Production, and have spent several years working as a scenic artist, painting scenery and props for theatres and theme parks. However, I am also extremely organized, and I truly enjoy doing paperwork, data entry, and creating color-coded Excel sheets. This unique mix of right and left-brained thinking has allowed me to thrive in a variety of work environments and to communicate well with different types of people. In my last full-time job, I worked as a Coordinator at Universal Creative here in Orlando, Florida, as part of the project team that created Universal’s new water park, Volcano Bay. As a member of the creative team, I was responsible for a variety of administrative tasks for the projectâ€™s designers and art directors, including (just to name a few) scheduling meetings, sending out meeting notes and to-do lists, writing RFP’s, and acting as the main liaison between Universal’s designers and our fabrication vendors.
A bit more about me:
â€¢ I have common sense, and I pick up on things quickly.
â€¢ I enjoy following the rules and adhering to procedures, but can also go with the flow and am constantly looking for more efficient ways to complete tasks.
â€¢ I don’t enjoy being bored, and am happy to jump in and help with whatever tasks need to get done.
â€¢ I grew up in Charlotte, NC and now live just outside of Orlando, Florida.
â€¢ I am interested in a part-time position with somewhat flexible hours.
I have attached my resume, and am happy to answer any questions you may have for me. I can also provide contact information for my supervisor at Universal as a reference if you would like. Thank you so much for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.
