Dear Mr. Schultz:
I am writing in response to the virtual assistant position you have open. This position interests me as this is something I have done before and enjoyed very much. When my children were younger, I worked for a company in Baltimore, Maryland that prepared mailing lists and mailings. Often, I would get a paper list that would need to be imputed and scrubbed before the mailing could take place.
In addition to my desire to join your team, you will find that I am a dedicated and driven professional. By looking at the attached resume, you will see I am proficient in many computer programs and have excellent communication and organization skills. I have vast experience in excel, word and mail merge.
The virtual assistant position sounds like a perfect fit for me. I am very enthusiastic about the chance to talk to you to discuss your needs and my qualifications for this position. You can reach me at 410-258-9065. I look forward to speaking to you.
