Dear Ms. Steube,
Please accept my application for the position of Administrative/Virtual Assistant. I found your job posting on HireMyMom.com, and Iâ€™m pleased to say that my skills match your requirements. I have had more than eight years of experience in administrative roles. I am well-versed in all the miscellaneous duties this job entails. I am extremely well organized and have a proven track record working with people from all walks of life.
I have recently been working as an administrative assistant for George Washington’s Mt. Vernon. I helped with the 17th Annual Spirit of Mt. Vernon event held on October 9, 2018. I worked with database entry; Microsoft Excel; invoicing; writing and editing for program and auction materials; and many other administrative jobs. The event had over 600 corporate attendees as well as Members of Congress and other important guests. It grossed over $550,000 for Mt. Vernon educational programs.
Prior to this role, I was as preschool teacher and a professional volunteer at my childrenâ€™s schools. I taught three and four-year-old children for almost eight years. I loved teaching and working with the elementary kids to help them have positive education experiences!
In my previous roles as an executive assistant, I handled all of the duties required for this position, and more, with great capability. I was frequently praised for my ability to handle complex tasks and solve problems without requesting input, but also maintain an awareness of when input may be desired. In short, as an executive assistant, I am efficient, attentive, and competent. Finally, I have all the skills necessary for the role.
I am eagerly anticipating having a follow up conversation with you about how I can help make the lives of your company executives easier. I want to be highly effective for you.
Please feel free to contact me at any time.
