RE: Administrative/Virtual Assistant Position with The Lady Boss League

Dear Ms. Tannhauser:

I’m writing today regarding the Administrative/Virtual Assistant Position with The Lady Boss League that you posted on I was excited to see this position as I too have a passion for coaching.

My background is quite diverse and proven in coaching, training and sales. I recently returned from living in Italy where my husband’s job took our family for five years. While in Italy, I volunteered and substitute taught for the Elementary and High School Department of Defense Military Schools on base. There weren’t many jobs for civilian spouses on base, but it allowed me to continue my love of coaching and teaching. Before moving to Italy, I was an Adjunct Instructor of Public Speaking and Communications at Tidewater Community College in the classroom and on-line in the evening for ten years and was a top sales performer for Auto Trader Publishing during the day.

While at Auto Trader, I sold print and on-line advertising to automotive dealers in 12 states as well as coached over 20 field offices on how to present and sell co-op advertising by obtaining manufacturer programs, giving product presentations and by billing and maintaining accounts. I transformed an underperforming territory into one of the leading western markets with estimated sales grossing $72,000 in weekly revenue and $3 million annually for the company. Not only did I achieve top rep status, but I was the leading sales rep in the country for the company two years in a row.

I am very passionate about people and I believe I have an eye for detail. I will work tirelessly if it’s something I believe in. I truly believe that I can also help you grow your business while enjoying myself in the process. I look forward to speaking with you further about this position and my qualifications. Please see my attached resume as it further illustrates my accomplishments.
