Position Desired: Highly Skilled Admin SPC with Design Skills

Cover Letter:
Dear Hiring Manager,

I am seeking opportunites as an office manager/administrative specialist/project coordinator. As you will see on my resume, I have gained much experience utilizing computers and various applications, specifically those within the Microsoft Office Suite. I have tested at the expert level in Excel and Access and advanced level in Word and PowerPoint, through staffing agencies I've contracted for in the past. I utilize Publisher frequently within my own business to create business cards, brochures, flyers, and other marketing collateral for clients, non-profits and my own business. I have and use Adobe Creative Suite containing applications such as Dreamweaver for creating web sites, Photoshop for manipulating and enhancing images and creating unique graphics, InDesign for page layout, Illustrator for creating vector graphics which are more favorable for printing and scaling, Acrobat Pro for file conversion to PDF and manipulation of those PDF's and many more.Simply stated, I've never encountered an application I couldn't easily adapt to.

I am a former employee of Halliburton where I worked in the operations department in the Broussard, Louisiana location. I performed support functions for the operations department in the form of collecting technical data, quality checking that data, pulling data into MS Access and manipulating that same data into queries, reports, charts and various documents used by operations and sales for the purpose of tracking tool performance and as sales tools. I also supported the field engineers in providing cell phones and pagers and submitting and tracking their vacation requests, travel arrangements and other administrative functions.

In a former contracting position with ExxonMobil, I also became quite adept at utilizing SAP. Within all positions I have held, multi-tasking was a daily requirement. My responsibilities included supporting top level management, sales staff, co-workers and field personnel. One of the functions I enjoyed very much was making travel arrangements, event and meeting coordination.

As an entrepreneur, I've also had to expand my knowledge of good accounting practices in the area of invoicing, accounts payable and receivable as well as some knowledge of business related taxes. Of course all of these positions, and my current volunteer and networking activities require a high degree of professionalism, which I continue to expand upon by staying involved in my community.

I also have skills and experience in graphic and web design, utilizing the applications of Adobe Creative Suite, such as Photoshop, Fireworks, InDesign, and Dreamweaver. I utilize these applications for creating digital graphics, logos, re-touching and customizing photos and stock photography, which can all be used for business cards, brochures, web graphics, and various marketing collateral. I also have advanced skills with PowerPoint to create professional presentations, with animation and narration. In my repertoire of computer skills is an advanced ability to manipulate data within MS Excel and Access for the purpose of data tracking, analysis and reporting.

With all of my skills and experience, I would make an excellent and quite productive member of your team. I am available for an interview at your earliest convenience and in the interim, feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Sincerely,


Yvette Bryars
