Runyon Cover Letter
Dear Mr. Runyon,
My name is Heather Lidwell, and Iâ€™m a South Floridian virtual professional with over 20 yearsâ€™ experience in handling the ins and outs of scheduling, communication, and I excel at understand the nature of being the bossâ€™s boss. An executive has a web of appointments, responsibilities, priorities, and has the huge task of roping it all in together with grace and professionalism. Thatâ€™s probably why Spiderman is my favorite superhero. Iâ€™m afraid I am not really into movies, but my favorite of all time is The Untouchables with Kevin Costner and Robert DeNiro because sometimes you can get farther with a kind word and a gun than you can with just a kind word (kindness and authority are always important). And my favorite work-out activity is swimming, which I confess I donâ€™t get to do nearly enough of. I probably burn more calories typing than I do swimming.
Now that Iâ€™ve answered your â€œextra workâ€ questions, Iâ€™ll get to the point of your request. I can certainly put in the 10+ hours per week you want to invest in seeing whether Iâ€™m a good fit for you. I understand that being a personal assistant is a very private and meaningful role in the life and career of an executive, and that kind of trust takes baby steps to form.
Iâ€™m very good at communicating, reaching out, and being intuitive as to when to give space. I relish the art of helping direct at a high level, understanding the values behind prioritization, and helping clarify routine, schedule, and message. I have a wide variety of business background, have worked both for private corporations and the non-profit sector. I have a very genuine, friendly, but direct style that upholds the highest standards of professionalism.
I would love the chance to talk to you and see if we would be a good fit. I want exactly what you are offering – a chance to work with someone long-term and be an invaluable asset.
Thank you for taking the time to review my resume, and please do feel free to just give me a call or email to discuss further.
