Dear Hiring Manager,
I am very excited to see there’s an open position for a Virtual Assistant at Innovation Advertising! I have worked from home for more than seven years and have virtually assisted a variety of clients. I have worked for individual clients and corporations. My home office is fully equipped with the standard office equipment needed to execute administrative assignments. Working independently and taking initiative when necessary are traits that I have sharpened as a Virtual Assistant. I am confident I would be a great addition to your team.
I provided sales and administrative support to a 15-member executive team from Foundry Marketing that worked out of the West and East coast offices. In addition, I provided personal assistance to a few of the top-level executives. I took minutes during company meetings via video conference, and I honored a 2-hour response time to any form of communication and a 24-hour response time on the days the company was closed. I was always available by phone, text or email.
I have also worked for individual clients that needed specific assignments executed on a regular basis, needed only one assignment completed or had a variety of work available at various times. Time management and organization skills have allowed me to take on several clients and meet time-sensitive deadlines with high-quality work. Effectively communicating has allowed me to always be up to date with my client’s needs and expectations. I also have more than 10 years of experience in administration and customer service within the physical fields of sales and healthcare.
My remote and administrative experience make me a great candidate for this position. My diligence and reliability make me the perfect fit. I look forward to meeting with you and discussing the position more fully. I am available Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. EST.
