I just saw your ad on â€œHire My Momâ€.
Why do I want to work for you?
Iâ€™ve worked for you before!
Well, not literally. But I have worked for at least one woman with your drive, and your need for a detailed oriented assistant to handle the details while she handled the â€œbig pictureâ€ strategic issues. I would be happy to do the same for you.
Why am I the best candidate for the position?
I have the skills you specified, which is the base.
Beyond that, one of my â€œsuper powersâ€ is the ability to both understand and create office systems that allow for an efficient business flow.
Although I follow instructions (I can do what I am told. I have found many people canâ€™t.) I work well independently, and always try to find my own answers first before asking questions, when that is necessary and appropriate.
To be completely upfront, I have not supported an online business before. But I have both created and maintained websites. I know HTML, CSS, and WordPress.
At a previous employer, I was tasked with sending out 100K emails a month, so I understand, and can use, mass email systems.
I learn very quickly, and I am certain I can perform whatever tasks you might need.
From your ad, what you need are things I am good at, and that I enjoy.
I look forward to hearing from you.

P.S. You asked for a writing sample. I was editor of an online and print behavioral health newsletter. I will send along an article from that newsletter.
