First Name Last Name
Dear HR Manager:
I am writing to express my interest in the position of Online Writer (Part Time). I have current on-the-job experience as an Admin Assistant in different hospitals within Government SA as well as previous experience in writing/marketing/hospitality/admin. I started my Masters in Business Administration at Flinders University, as well as an online Medical Terminology course. My professional interests lie in Writing, Online Marketing, Administration, Government, Customer Service, Typing, Administration, Data Entry, Business and Communications, and I’m eager to make a positive impact while interacting with all people involved in this industry.
This vacant position particularly caught my attention as it involves being a Writer, which would complement my previous and current activities conducting as a Typist in Government SA. My most recent experience at Royal Adelaide Hospital in SA Health allowed me to work with other senior Medical Typists, who trained me from the ground up in how to open and create official medical letters, process all new incoming and old clinic lists, letters, emails, phone calls, update OzeScribe patients’ and doctors’ addresses and confidential information for communications, sort out mail and faxes, scanning hard copy documents, and sending out numerous letters to many Doctors and Professors all around Australia. I learned valuable new medical terminology, several different medical database processes, how to speak to all staff and patients in a professional manner, and why Medical Typists are so important in making sure that there is no delay or backlog in the system and that critical information is relayed to Doctors on time. The experience further solidified my interest in the areas of writing, typing, medicine, medical typing, government, administration, data entry, business, health, scientific, and psychiatric services. I am computer literate with own home computer and NBN broadband internet access, self-motivated, reliable, available and able to commit 8+ hours minimum each week.
In addition to the skills developed in my work experiences in typing, marketing, administration and hospitality, I am enthusiastic, helpful, supportive, ability to coordinate and prioritize workloads, Microsoft office skills and most of all, writing.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you about my candidacy in greater detail.
