Attributes that best describes:
I have a Bachelor's degree in English (creative writing) and a certificate in technical communications. I recently completed advanced courses in technical editing and creative writing. In these courses, I proofread, edited, and provided feedback for approximately seventy different pieces. The pieces ranged from business manuals and school policies to short stories and flash pieces. I also have experience proofreading and editing company documents in the workplace. I believe that my education in English and technical communications, as well as my work experience, makes me an excellent candidate for this position.
The main skills that I have learned from my college experience are patience, dedication, and attention to detail. I have learned how to work on a tight schedule, work both independently and in a group setting, and adjust to various situations and settings. I have also learned that details can mean everything. These lessons have better prepared me for time-consuming and detail-oriented tasks, such as proofreading, copyediting, and writing.
In addition to the skills that I have learned from my college experience, I have also learned how to interact with other people and how to take directions, thanks to my work experience. I hold a position as the vice president of Steel PROfessionals, LLLP. This position has taught me how to communicate with my coworkers and with other business associates through daily face-to-face contact and email. I have also learned how to collaborate effectively on projects, which will help in situations in which I am required to interact with a group of coworkers. My work experience with monitoring finances and editing our company website has instilled in me an attention to details.
Thank you for considering my submission. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you. Feel free to contact me anytime by email at [email protected]
