COVER LETER AND RESUME


COVER LETTER:
To Whom It May Concern,

I am currently on the market to find a full-time position in the Dallas Area. My resume will reflect a heavy background in Adminstritive Assistant roles. What my resume does not reflect is my personality, go getter attitude, the willingness to continually learn new genres and my versatility. I am looking for a position that will allow for growth. I excel in researching, public speaking, letter writing, good oral communications. I work better and more productively in a singular environment and really appreciate the right team environment. I will excel in places that allow for out of the box thinking, where paradigm shifts are encouraged and seeking the sucess in others.

I am currently employed for the past three years with a small boutique firm. I will be happy to explain my wish to move to another position in meeting.

Thank you for reading this very unorthodox cover letter and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Below are some links show some of my activity. I always have to brag about my one group I created out of the necessity of needing to make some friends, I am glad to say I have about 730 friends now. We are book and wine club I have been running for 4 years. The other link is a blog, where I write about trips abroad. It is new and tomorrow is my first interview with another person to post on the blog…..

Again, I do hope to hear from you and that we can work together to find the right position or even a few temporary ones till the right one comes along.

Sincerely,

Tiffany S May
