Mind Maven Cover Letter

January 31, 2017

Dear Mr. Patrick Ewers:

My name is Allison Meyer, and I am very interested in becoming the executive assistant for Mindmaven.

While my degree is in school counseling, I believe that I have the skills needed to be a great addition to your team. Helping students, staff, and families was the main focus of my job, but a large part of my responsibilities occurred behind the scenes. I was constantly juggling multiple tasks, meetings, and committees, in addition to the student support. Much of my work for meetings included not only the scheduling and preparation for the meetings, but also facilitating, and diligent note taking. It was crucial that I kept extremely organized.

As a counselor, I worked hard to listen and understand the wide variety of struggles that students, staff, and families were facing, and help them come to realistic solutions to their problems. Having nearly 600 students, it was necessary that I learn to be impactful and concise in a small window of time, but to also make sure that each student had a positive experience.

I love new challenges, and pushing myself to be better than I was the previous day. I look forward to the new opportunities that being your executive assistant can present.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Allison Rathbone Meyer
