What do you want your website to say? Either "we care about our website because we care about our customers" or "we prefer to choose whatever is cheapest - quality is not important to us"? You can award your project to an offshore designer and pay next to nothing, but the old adage always remains true. You will get what you pay for. On the other hand, if you want professional web artistry, I hope you'll consider asking how much your web presence is worth.

I am a management consultant and have appreciable experiience in consulting for private and public organisations. My forte is in human capacity building. I derive immense joy from assisting individuals, corporations and govenments to actualize their potential. I earned the degrees of B.S(Hons), MBA and Ph.D from three universities; University of Nigeria, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and University of Southern California (USC) respectively. Under the auspices of the World Bank, I went through an intensive internship program with P-E Consulting Group, England, U.K . The program emphasis was on Organizations and Management Systems,Marketing and Financial Engineering Strategies for Reconstruction. Over the years, I have developed a capacity for quantitative approach to problem resolution. With a strong grounding in theoretical constructs and quantitative analysis I could handle effectively some knotty challenges in the fields of corporate and public administration. An experience gathered in working for well-managed organizations like Mobil Oil, American Construction Equipment Inc. and as a Commissioner for Finance and Economic Planning for a State Government, I developed an eclectic systems approach to problem solving. My doctoral dissertation is on Optimization of Public Financial Intermediation for Program Effectiveness. As a team player with appreciable international exposure, my world view is rooted in the belief that cooperation generates substantial synergy. I work deligently by the rules to attain set objectives within specified deadlines.

I am a non-practicing attorney who has always wanted to sing. I played the leads years ago in musicals; The Wizard od Oz (Dorothy), Once Upon a Mattress, HMS Pinafore, and others. I have had a dream of singing in casual venues, perhaps in the style of Carly Simon, Joni Mitchell, John Denver, or James Taylor. I am interested in fulfilling my dream. I am also capable of editing, especially for grammar and spelling. I have written legal briefs and have authored and passed original municipal ordinances in my capacity as a Trustee.

To Whom It May Concern: My name is Joseph Nowaczyk. I have recently graduated from Lewis University in Romeoville, Illinois with an Arts and Science bachelors degree in Television and Radio Broadcasting. I have taken plenty of classes in editing, and am proficient in both Avid Media Composer and Final Cut Pro. I have more experience with Avid. I first started learning Avid while in an ENG class, and used it primarily to make news packages for our daily news program on our station LUTN. With Avid I helped use it to create the popular student program of the 2008-2009 school year, Undecided. Undecided was voted the number one student created show in its premier year, and was the most anticipated return for its second. For the show I was the main editor, and in charge of post-production.I’ve also had training in Final Cut Pro. I’ve used Final Cut Pro to cut a documentary on local bands. This documentary went above and beyond what anyone was expecting from the class, gaining outside support from bands such as Flogging Molly and staff at Fat Wreck Chords. Outside of the television aspect, I also had a leg in the radio field. I did my internship at WSCR 670 AM The Score. I was a production assistant for The Mully & Hanley Morning Show. All of my work consisted with sound production. I am confident that I can be exactly what you are looking for in an editor position. I’m constantly working with both Avid and Final Cut Pro to do what I can and stay on top of the changes that occur in the field. I’ve included a demo that shows these skills. I am open to negotiation for my salary, and would like to work with you to figure it out. I hope what you see will help persuade you, and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Sincerely yours, Joseph Nowaczyk

For the past four years, I have worked as a copy editor for the Indiana University School of Continuing Studies Independent Study Program collaborating with instructional designers, instructors, authors, graphic designers, and XML coders to create, organize, and present online and print course content. I have proofed and edited self-study courses at the high school and undergraduate levels in disciplines ranging from Philosophy to Spanish and Business to Gender Studies. My duties include editing and proofing before and after coding; directing queries to authors; searching for relevant online resources and Creative Commons graphics; as well as verifying facts, links, references to source materials, citations, and copyright compliance. As a freelancer, I have a well-established relationship with the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL). I currently wish to expand my freelance client base for two major reasons: (1) I desire to break into the world of book publishing and (2) I want to relocate to my hometown of San Antonio, Texas. I pride myself on my attention to detail, my ability to work well with others, my problem-solving skills, and my capacity to work within varying parameters, such as voice and style. I have worked on up to eight projects at different levels of the production process and under such tight deadlines as twenty four hours, often exceeding expectations. Let my eagle eyes do the work for you! Sincerely, Holly L. Holbrook Maya Luna Editing The Ink Slinger's Maven
