The GateKeeper

I have extensive administrative support experience at the executive level and pride myself on excelling at any task and
having the ability to wear many hats at one time.

In many of my positions as Customer Support and Administrative Assistant for a variety of different fields, I served as the gatekeeper, to a variety of departments when additional resources were needed. My reputation as a competent team member who always gets the job done comes from my ability to work cross-functionally and multi-task various responsibilities such as screening calls; managing calendars; making travel, meeting and event arrangements; preparing reports and financial data.

The most important skill I pride myself on is that I am resourceful and an avid self-starter. My experience has taught me the importance of being proactive and adapt as situations arise. I have also learned that having technical proficiency in the company’s database would help make my job a lot easier because I would have direct access to the data rather than going through another employee. Our training time was scarce, so I self-taught myself how to use the program over the course of a few days and now as I look back, it was well worth the effort. I’ve learned that work no longer seems like a job to me when I can juggle multiple projects and can anticipate needs before they become problems – that’s when I’m at my best.

I am excited about this opportunity and hope to be able to contribute my skills and talents to making your office run as smoothly as possible. I hope you will consider me and I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Sincerely,

Jamila Simpson
