I got your resume and went through it perfectly.I’m looking for someone that can be trusted and reliable, someone with good understanding and working skills.
I am Mr Peter Martins, 45 yrs of age, I’m an Investor and I have been pretty successful in a handful of ventures I get involved in; from Canada and United State to various welfare and community service programs. I most very often get my hands occupied, so it is imperative or me to have a worthy assistant who can monitor and keep me up to date with my activities.This position is home-based, private and flexible, working with me is basically about instructions and following them. My only fear is that I may come at you impromptu sometimes, so i need someone who can be able to meet up with my irregular timings.
As my personal admin/financial assistant, your activities among others will include:
*Create and modify documents using Microsoft Office
*Running personal errands, supervisions and monitoring.
*Scheduling programmes, flights and keeping me up to date with them.

I’m sure you’ll understand I tend to have a very busy schedule at this point as I am presently in Scotland for a summit. I will be back in four Weeks time.
I think you’re the right person for this post, Please note that this position is not office based for now because of my frequent travels and tight schedules. It’s a part-time, work from home basis and the flexibility means that there will be busier weeks than others. So it’s a little difficult judging the exact number of hours you’ll be doing per week. If you can manage your time properly, this job may even give you some extra while you do something else on the side. As I have said, I’d want us to get a head start with things as soon as possible. I do have a pile up of work and a number of unattended chores which you can immediately assist me with. I hope we can meet up with the workload eventually. Permit me to use the coming week to test your efficiency and diligence towards all this, also to work out your time schedule and fit it to mine. I really need to find the perfect person for this job and i am confident you can take up the challenges. On the long run we should have a relatively sound working relationship between us.
I’m online most of the time as I am hard of hearing so I prefer we contact each other through E-mails but if there is need for me to call, I will be glad to do that. I am glad you are willing to work with me and i promise to be a good boss. I am also glad on the commitment in working. I have been checking my files and what i would want you to do for me is to run some errands out to some of the orphanage home which I do every month. The funds will be in form of Cashier check/Money orders, it will be sent over to you from one of my clients and i have some list to email you once you received the funds. You will make some arrangements by buying some stuff for the kids in the nearest store around you so you can mail them out. I will get you more information on that.
