From Kerry Madden to Michelle Abt, Owner/Founder Pulse Content, LLC

September 16, 2018

Dear Michelle:

Your job listing really got me thinking. I’m looking to evolve my career toward freelance writing by leveraging skills gained during 30+ years at marketing communications agencies. I’m hoping those skills – particularly writing, research and project management – make me a strong candidate for a part-time writing/editing position at Pulse Content.

I’ve managed countless advertising and branding projects, with responsibilities including client/agency liaison, strategy development, design critique, marketing research coordination, and management of schedule/budget/deliverables.

Luckily for me, writing was always a key aspect of the job, so I’ve authored pitch presentations, category communication audits, positioning and creative strategies, concept statements, POVs, case studies, research reviews, and packaging and web copy.

Research has often been part and parcel of my writing assignments, so I’ve cultivated strong internet research skills. I love digging down into a topic. I’ve also conducted management interviews in project fact-finding phases.

I genuinely hope to hear from you, to see if we might have a match. I see you are in Stamford. I’m not far away; I’d be happy to come for a visit if you’re interested. Thank you for your consideration.


Kerry Madden
