Associate Desktop Publisher
Date: June 1, 200-
Subject: Qualified Associate Desktop Publisher Candidate
In support of my candidacy for the Associate Desktop Publisher position on your firm's website, attached is a copy of my resume. Also, please review my web portfolio at www.csmith.com. While a picture may be worth a thousand words, I do hope that we can share a few words together via an interview. I do want to share my motivations as well as qualifications.
My ten years of progressively responsible computer experience, all detailed on my resume, include researching, developing, and documenting the operational procedures of a software seller. I was responsible for all aspects of the design, creation, and dissemination of many user-friendly yet state-of-the-art manuals. I also coordinated and published the sales and marketing of a newsletter distributed monthly to key accounts and sales representatives.
Successful completion of such projects requires skills that match those stated as required of the Associate Desktop Publisher post. These qualifications include:
Experience transforming data from research into factual, detailed, and accurate copy and graphics.
Record of success planning, overseeing, and delivering projects on time and error-free.
Comprehensive graphic and text-editing talents, with capacity to maximize the efforts of writers, graphic artists, designers, and freelancers.
Proficiency using, supporting, and teaching others Word, PageMaker, PhotoShop, PhotoShow, Visual Studio, Picture It, QuarkXPress, Illustrator, Front Page, Print Shop, and Publisher.
I will be visiting Richmond next week, and I would be happy to meet with you at your convenience. I will call to confirm your receipt of this e-mail and to discuss the possibility of meeting. Of course, I will forward original samples from my portfolio as well as a copy of my resume. Thank you for your consideration.
