Virtual Assistant with Alycia Wicker
March 14, 2018
Dear Ms. Wicker:
I am writing to express my interest in the posted position of Virtual Assistant with your company. I have been actively seeking a position like the one described, and believe that my qualifications and skills will be a great match.
I began my professional career more than 20 years ago, culminating in my appointment as Associate Director of Graduate Admissions of Simmons College in Boston in 2005. This position demanded strong interpersonal skills, since my responsibilities included meeting with prospective students, answering their questions, following up on applications and scheduled visits, and assisting them through application process. In addition to my admission and student service responsibilities, I was the sole designer of marketing material for the office, creating newsletters, flyers, advertisements, tri-folds and brochures. I worked closely with the marketing department to ensure that all pieces were on brand, and followed the process from concept to publication. I began working a part time schedule after the birth of my first child in 2007, dividing my work schedule between home and the office.
I am currently searching for a position that continues to offer and support that work/life balance that we are all seeking.
Described by my previous director as knowledgeable, proactive, savvy and thorough, my ability to work autonomously allowed me to continue with the same projects and responsibilities I held when I worked a more traditional schedule.
I am confident that my professional skills are an ideal match for this position, my personal skills will make me an asset to Alycia Wicker, and I will be great fit with your professional needs. I welcome a chance to speak with you in greater detail about my work experience, educational background, and career and personal goals.
On a far less serious, less “cover-letter”-y note, you and I may have been separated at birth. I took some time to explore your website, and I love how down to earth you seem. Although I am not sure that I am cool enough to be Juno’s love child, I am a extremely hard and dedicated employee who once got in trouble by a stuffy boss when I jokingly asked a co-worker if they were on crack. I do not leave tasks undone, pretend to be someone I am not, or pass the buck.
Thank you for taking the time to review my resume and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Heather Kenrick Nadeau
