Dear Hiring Manager:

Thank you for taking the time to review my résumé for a Freelance Writer position. I know this would be a lucrative and fitting opportunity, given the many skills I have acquired through my bachelor’s degree in English, my current graduate studies in Nonprofit Management and my work history. My experience with proposal, advertisement and academic writing correlate to the responsibilities in the job description.

During my career as an undergraduate student at UNC Wilmington, my English courses taught me to work under minimal supervision with strict deadlines to produce polished and professional work. These requirements are not new to me. My courses gifted me with exceptional skills using all Microsoft Office programs, AP style, Chigago Manual, APA style, HTML, Google Suite and Adobe Creative Suite. I pride myself in my ability to quickly adapt to new principles and environments. Thriving in a culture of constant improvement fosters productivity for all involved and I welcome this aspect of the position, wholeheartedly.

My employment as a Proposal Writer for a background-screening service enhanced my talents of adhering to deadlines and maintaining a keen eye for detail. My proposals were carefully inspected to be of the highest quality for obtaining new contracts. While working in sales and marketing I managed a team of 10+ individuals to become the highest-producing team in the office. Creating proposals for a contracting company has equipped me with the ability to transform complex, technical information into readable content for general audiences. My multi-tasking skills stem from 5+ years in the service industry handling a variety of clientele and requests, from high-end restaurants to busy college bars. My previous position at Breazy, Inc. has given me experience in advertising/content writing, with a focus on unique storytelling, and project management.

I am confident my 4+ years of proposal grant writing, advertisement writing and project management qualify me for the duties of this Freelance Writer position. Additionally, I am working towards a Master of Science in Nonprofit Management degree and the extensive writing from my studies will greatly assist me in this position. My writing will improve the organization’s communication and viewership by capturing the attention of readers through a smooth flow of persuasive prose, catered to target audiences. Thank you for your interest and I hope to hear from you soon.
