Larrie R. Funk Senior Technical Writer/Editor Dear Sir/Madam: Yes, I would definitely be interested in the position provided you are amenable to my situation as enumerated below. Please find attached below a copy of my resume. (A more detailed version is available upon request.) Due to the fact that my wife is disabled and I cannot leave her alone for long periods of time, I am basically seeking work I can perform from my fully equipped and capable home office. I have worked on a freelance basis for a large number of years and feel there is no reason why this assignment could not be accomplished via a telecommute basis. With regard to client meetings, they could also be accomplished via teleconferencing if necessary. However, an on-site presence on my part is not totally out of the question as long as I did not have to be there more than 5% of the time and your company is willing to pick up the commuting cost. I am very familiar with all of the Microsoft Office programs and Visio as well as RoboHelp, Quark, Photoshop, FrameMaker, SnagIt, and Adobe Acrobat software, to name a few of the programs I use most often. I am also very experienced with both the MAC and PC platforms. As a result of the vast amount of time I have been in this profession and the large variety of projects that I have completed successfully for numerous companies/individuals, I feel that I would have absolutely no difficulty meeting the requirements you set forth in your webvertisement. I have taught classes using the manuals I have developed as the curriculum. And, I have also worked in customer service for other companies. Therefore, I look at writing as a form of customer service because the writer is trying to aid the customer in performing/understanding a task. Although I may not be a 100% match for your ”ideal candidate profile”, I do feel that my abilities would lend themselves to your particular publication endeavors as well. In my opinion, a competent technical writer is an individual that can take a complicated dissertation and translate that into language the average individual with anywhere between a PHD to a sixth grade education can understand and fully comprehend. Depending on the needs of the audience, this is what I endeavor to do in all my writing assignments. Currently I edit a monthly newsletter for a Doctor of Chiropractic and Homeopathy. And, I have also edited lecture presentations for this same individual. I have recently completed ghost writing a book for another doctor covering the benefits of Cetyl Myristolerate as they relate to arthritis. And, in addition, I have just finished a book editing assignment for prominent C.E.O. Consultant/Business Coach. With regard to salary, that is open for discussion. But, please keep in mind that I have over 20 years of experience at doing what I do, as you can see by my resume, and that I am reasonably good at it. I would be interested in hearing the figure you have in mind. Thank you for the opportunity to let you know I would be interested in undertaking this assignment. Sincerely, Larrie R. Funk Senior Technical Writer/Editor P.S. I look forward to further discussing how I may put my years of experience to work for you. I may be reached at 1-847-917-2131. If I should be temporarily away, there is voicemail on that line. I do return all my calls as long as you leave your name, number and purpose of the call. P.P.S. Please be advised... I currently have NO DESIRE to become a captive employee of any employer. I work strictly on a contract/freelance basis. Clients are invoiced for work performed. Payment is due upon receipt.
