Dear Ms. Davidson:

I am writing in reference to the Administrative/Virtual Assistant position currently advertised on hiremymom.com. This job opening caught my eye, as I am currently seeking a work-from-home position in which a musical background is key.

As you will see from my resume, I have experience working in several different fields, including Human Resources and proofreading. I have also spent the last eight-and-a-half years as a homemaker- supporting my husband’s career as an active duty naval officer. Now that my children are older, I am excited to finally be in a position to start a new chapter in my life in which I am able to enjoy a career while maintaining a work-life balance.

Given my life and work experience, I feel that the attributes of the ideal candidate for the Administrative/Virtual Assistant position include many of the qualities which I possess. Some of my qualifications include:

• Ability to understand and work in a music environment: I have spent more than half of my life studying and playing music. I have extensive knowledge of woodwind instruments- clarinet, in particular. I took private lessons for over a decade and have even taught music lessons to beginner and intermediate students. I have also played in marching bands, concert bands, orchestras and jazz bands. I have also enjoyed KinderMusik classes with my children.

• Ability to act independently: As a homemaker, I have single-handedly coordinated eight household moves, changing of medical benefits and services for my family; and kept impeccable records for schools, doctors and finances.

• Ability to communicate effectively verbally and in writing: During my tenure as a human resource specialist at Marine Corps Community Services and Bello Machre- I often drafted offer letters and created PowerPoint presentations for employee training.

I sincerely appreciate the time you have taken to review my resume. If you feel my qualifications are in line with what you are looking for in an Administrative/Virtual Assistant, please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Warmest Regards,
Beth Foster
