Dear Ms. Sudar,
It is with great enthusiasm that I submit my resume for the position of Writer/Editor for Catalyst Marketing Agency, as I think my skill set would be a great fit for proofreading and editing blog posts while maintaining the writerâ€™s unique voice and style. I worked at Apple for 7 years in the Retail and Development department so understand the importance of effective leadership and setting high expectations for success while remaining open, flexible, and supportive. At Apple, I played an integral role in establishing vendor relationships and sourcing strategies, was the main communication/marketing contact for internal departments and outside inquiries, and developed the personnel structure for our department as it grew. The opportunity to be a part of the department from the beginning (prior to opening any retail stores) allowed me to do everything from hiring and managing project coordinators to creating presentations for the executive team. These varied experiences led me to building a reputation for finding solutions, communicating expectations, and motivating others to believe in their abilities to achieve those expectations.
Since leaving Apple, I’ve written articles for The Language Educator and have begun working on a master’s degree in mental health counseling, which has enhanced my writing, research, and editing skills. I love being part of a team while at the same time I’m very self-directed, enjoy working independently, and pride myself on meeting deadlines.
As youâ€™ll see from the attached resume, Iâ€™m capable of doing any type of administrative work necessary, but Iâ€™m most excited about the opportunity to help your client express thoughts and ideas effectively while maintaining the writerâ€™s point of view. My combination of relationship and listening skills, knowledge of corporate and technical culture, ability to communicate effectively, attention to detail, and willingness to learn would be a great fit for your editing and proofreading needs.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
