I retired as a Division V.P. for Saks, Inc. I was responsible for merchandising, advertising planning and sales analysis for 52 stores in the Southeast. I led my team of 18 buyers and assistants thru a complete study of trend analysis weekly. I am best at intrepreting the written words and I pay very close attention to detail. I now read constantly. It is my favorite sport. I think my background of close analysis and attention to detail gives me the qualifications for the proofreading job you are offering. I am amazed daily at the number of mistakes, both grammar and spelling that I find in the published books that I read. I could easily devote the 5 hours aday to this job. Being on time and meeting a schedule are two important issues I feel are key to being a professional.
