Ruthy Kirwan: Cover Letter
March 10, 2018
To Whom It May Concern,
First, let me say that Iâ€™m thrilled you are seeking out my cover letter! I was recommended to HireMyMom.com by a friend who has found success in remote positions listed on the site, and she has such good things to say about the entire experience. Iâ€™ve always been fascinated by social media and online marketing, so this is an exciting opportunity for me and Iâ€™m so happy to be considered – thank you!
Briefly, Iâ€™ve been involved in the online space and social media for years, and not just from a personal standpoint (although I love it for my personal life and social connections!) My family owns and IT company, and other than growing up around computers and knowing them like a second language, I have been in charge of the businessâ€™ online presence and marketing efforts since 2013. Iâ€™m the voice on social media for our company and brand, and I write our bi-weekly newsletters that go out to hundreds to local small business owners interested in technology for their company.
In 2011, I started a (now-defunct) blog, and quickly got acclimated to marketing, branding, and using social media as a marketing tool to both create awareness of my website and connect with readers.
The blog went dark in 2014 when my daughter was born, but in 2016 I started it again and have enjoyed a small level of success.
On a personal note, Iâ€™m passionate about connecting consumers and fans to the right brands, developing the relationship between the two, and seeing how social media can connect people of all ages and locations. Iâ€™m deadline driven, focused, easy to work with, concise, well-written, and friendly.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Thanks for your time,
