Re: Webcast Host Opening (HireMyMom.com)
Dear Ms. DAndrea:
I was excited to see your opening for a webcast host for www.shetribe.com, and I hope to be invited for an interview. I realize this position is listed as a full-time position and Iâ€™m interested discussing a one-year contractor position with the potential for renewal as a possible option if that might work for you.
My background includes developing, producing, marketing, and hosting webinars as Chief Learning Officer with www.PublicDecisions.com. Most recently, Iâ€™ve launched my own heart-centered coaching business in January 2016; as a melanoma survivor, Iâ€™m working to support fellow Indigos (Highly Sensitive Persons) on their cancer journey. Iâ€™m seeking a VA position to support me while my coaching business gets off the ground this year.
Previously, I worked as a communications consultant with companies, public agencies, and nonprofit organizations, including small businesses, and as a faculty member at a research university where I worked on social media and engagement projects with students, alumni, faculty, prospective students, and community members.
In these positions, I demonstrated the ability to operate a webinar system, establish questions with speakers for possible use in the Q&A session of webinars and podcasts, host webinar and podcast programs (including welcoming attendees, introducing the speaker, and creating and sharing guidelines for participating), warmly interact with the speaker or speakers and attendees during the program, and close the program in a graceful manner with instructions on where to find more information, the recording and other messages that reinforced the program objectives. In all, Iâ€™ve produced and hosted more than 60 webinars and several podcast programs.
In addition to this experience, I have a kind and thoughtful phone and webinar presence and am able to think quickly on my feet. I have experience using Go To Meeting and teleconference bridge lines and I am a dedicated self-starter who enjoys creating goals and steadily working towards them.
I also bring to the table strong technical and production proficiencies and I have extensive experience training new presenters on using webinar technologies and on troubleshooting difficulties during webinar programs. Please see the accompanying resume for details of my experience and education.
I am confident that I can offer you the webinar management, communication and problem-solving skills you are seeking. Feel free to call me at 703-623-4811 (cell) or to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an interview. Thank you for your timeâ€”I look forward to learning more about this opportunity!
