Dear Mr. Allen,
I am seeking a position as a Proofreader and found your opening on your website. My resume has been attached for your perusal and convenience. I know that I have the experience and education that would make me an asset to your company.
I have an Associate’s Degree in English and have been working as a proofreader online for more than six years now. I am seeking a full time position as the freelance industry is not offering the clientele that it once did. The economy is making it very difficult to bring in new business and I feel that I need to have a more secure placement.
It takes a great attention to detail in order to spot the common errors and mistakes that are regularly made by writers. I work quickly and can go through many pages of text in just minutes and never miss an error. For this reason, I know that I would be an asset to your company and that I would bring the skills that you are seeking.
It would be great if we could get together to further discuss my background and what I would bring to this position. If you would like to contact me, you can call me at (555)-555-5555.
