2 Skills
My work experience is mostly managerial/sales. I do have one self-published children's book and another that I'm shopping. I also have a non-fiction book I am working on. I have never done proofreading professionally, however spelling and grammar mistakes stand out to me as if they are in neon. My actual resume is pasted below, but I'd love to branch out into the world of writing as a profession.
