Thank you for taking the time to review my application for the Virtual Assistant position with Maes Consulting. I am confident you will agree that my experience and skills are a natural fit for this position.
I am a work-from-home Mom in St Paul, MN, currently looking to expand my portfolio. I am a local residential real estate agent and a budding network marketing online coach, so I am very accustomed to working autonomously and virtually. Those businesses do require many nights and weekends, so I am looking for an opportunity with more stability which can be completed during normal business hours, when my kids are in school.
My most recent office position was with a non-profit business association in St Paul, MN. With a very lean staff and a variety of responsibilities, I learned to be easily adaptable to all the needs that popped up within the organization. This included experience utilizing Microsoft Office, Google docs, calendar and Gmail. I do not have experience with Slack, but I am a very adaptable learner and can quickly pick up new programs.
I work best in an environment when Iâ€™m given an objective and a timeline, and then given the opportunity to get my work done. When working at the non-profit, reporting to a board of directors, I was often praised for knowing which challenges needed to be brought to the boardâ€™s attention and which decisions I should handle on my own. I pride myself on my attention to detail and always ensure that I am putting forth my best work.
I enjoyed learning more about you and your company through your web site. After reviewing your â€œabout usâ€ section, I do have one concern about us working well together. My family loves watching sports together too, but we will be cheering for the Cubs, Vikings and MN Wild! Hopefully we can work around that one little difference. 🙂
I am looking forward to connecting with you further to learn more about this position and how I can be of assistance.
