Dr. Tatta:

Thank you for taking the time to review my resume. I am interested in the Psychology/Science Writer position advertised with hiremymom.com.

I am currently employed as an executive level assistant for a 150-bed men’s addiction rehabilitation program in Fort Lauderdale. I wear many hats here, all of which necessitate my unique skill set on a daily basis. I am confident that the experience I have in many different business settings over the years qualify me for consideration of the position, especially the current experience working with those in recovery and mental health, and also operating and managing work at home. I look forward to talking with you and discussing my qualifications in more detail.

Here are three samples of my writing, taken from my Facebook page. Please bear in mind that the addiction rehabilitation facility I work for is faith-based, so the nature of this writing is biblical.

Advanced Recovery Class: It’s going to happen. Hopefully, early in recovery, you will get an epiphany of the major source of pain that is causing your present sufferings. A hundred percent of the time, that source will be found buried long in the past. The temptation will be to give it a quick nod, hope to move on, and stop thinking about it. While it’s true that we don’t want to live in the past, until we see Jesus in that situation that happened so long ago, we will not be healed. The fact is, beloved, that hurt has woven itself into many other relationships and problems throughout your entire life – not just addiction. So how can you develop the ability to see Jesus in that event? You begin to draw very close to Him in worship and prayer until you have developed a close enough relationship to hear His still, small voice in the quiet of your heart. It will take a little time, but it’s not going to take as long as you think. When that day comes, simply ask Him. “Jesus, You know everything about me. You were there. What is Your truth about me, in light of all this?”

Advanced Recovery Class: I would like to offer a thought this morning to hopefully challenge the perspective of why we are seeing so much evil. Frankly, drugs, crime, abuses of all kinds, racism, etc… It looks like evil is winning. What if I told you that the reason we are seeing this is because of a lack of goodness? Christians, we have goodness living on the very inside of us. Many of us have been silenced because of our own fears and past failures, but the world around us is dying because we are refusing to express goodness in the world. Capture every negative thought inside your heart and those coming from others towards you, and pray in the opposite spirit! When you begin to think about rejection or fear, choose to speak a prayer of acceptance and courage. When trouble and poverty come, begin to think and pray about success and the wisdom to flourish. When thoughts about the fear of relapse come, pray and thank the Lord for His ability to overcome every situation. The Lord’s goodness spoken into the earth defeats so much more evil than what we realize. Romans 12:21

Advanced Recovery Class: Meetings, “rooms” and one-on-ones can be a great place to expose matters of the heart that might not be aligned with purposes for recovery. However, if they are just used to express frustrations about other people’s behavior, there is no real spiritual ground that is gained. The world would tell you to just speak things about other people because it’s important to “keep it real.” Again, this is the world’s wisdom that we know leads nowhere. The Bible says that he who has no wisdom despises his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his peace. A talebearer reveals secrets, but he who is of a faithful spirit conceals a matter. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭11‬:‭12-13‬). Unless you feel someone is going to hurt themselves or someone else, or you are bringing a matter before the Lord in prayer, weigh very carefully what you are about to say. There is no shame in remaining silent, both as a recognition that you don’t know everything, God loves everyone, and that you respect the concept of and are willing to grow in wisdom.‬‬‬

Thank you for your interest in my resume and creative style of writing.
