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.

My patience and charismatic personality have allowed me to create great clients, develop to their needs and continue a relationship that has my clients return for more business. Team work is something I enjoy greatly, I am able to assist in a team work environment and conform to my assignments as well as assist others, however; working as a single player has also been a skill well thought and embedded by my academic work and previous work experience. Throughout my education, I have developed a natural instinct for learning new systems and concepts as well as the rigorous application for the necessary tools in the field. In addition to academic work, my experience also includes working part-time internships dealing with small to mid-size scale projects. My dedication and work allowed me to build a stellar reputation among my previous employers for quickly and effectively resolving issues. I am a detail oriented and thoughtful professional prepared to excel in the field. In my previous employment my range of work varied greatly I would develop brochures, flyers, posters, postcards, even manage artwork for web blasts as well as publications (magazines), single ads and even small video. All of my previous experience and education has prepared me to cope with deadlines, prioritize and develop multitasking skills. I believe that my academic training and field experience is well-suited for the Graphic Artist position available with your company. I am convinced that my abilities will benefit the company; as a fast learner and exceptional worker, I am eager to put my drive, energy and skills to work for my employer. I would welcome the opportunity for an interview at your earliest convenience. I assure you, you will not regret it. Thank you for your consideration and time, I will be looking forward to receiving your reply. Sincerely, Ms. Perla Pequeno
