Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing in response to the available Executive Assistant/Office Manager position.
I am currently working as the Virtual Operations Coordinator of an email marketing company and in search of a new position. As I was reading about the company and what youâ€™re looking for I was saying â€œYes, Yes, Yes!â€ until I got to the part that says â€œMust have a carâ€ and realized this was not a Virtual position. If you stop reading and move onto the next cover letter and resume Iâ€™ll understand.
I am an Army wife of seven years that is anxiously searching for a new position. I currently work for an email marketing company. Some of my responsibilities include client management, email design, quality control, scheduling and Accounts Payable and Receivable. I also manage the CEOâ€™s personal finances.
As I mentioned, I was excited as I read the description. I love that you love dogs and laugh at yourself on a daily basis. I could tell that the job description was written by someone Iâ€™d like to work for!
I am uniquely qualified for this position because not only do I feel I can accomplish the tasks you have outlined (not including the car part). As a kid, my third grade teacher told my mom that I was a problem-solver and my mom came home from conferences and told me. I took it as the biggest compliment and still to this day feel like that has played a very big part in my critical thinking. I am a true problem solver. I love to working as a team and brainstorm.
My interests include baking and crafting. I force treats on anyone that will take them. I frequently send food with my husband to work because nothing is more flattering than an empty pan of something Iâ€™ve made. I also just started a small mobile spray tanning business that is keeping me busy as well.
So, if youâ€™ve made it this far then Iâ€™ve at least captured your attention. I understand if you need to hire in Portland but it was worth by best shot in the rare case that this position could be made Virtual.
I am very interested in learning more about your company but of course understand if that is not something you can do at this point.
Thank you for your consideration.
P.S. This is no way is a conventional cover letter for me. I thought if I was going out on a limb I might as well climb the whole tree!
