Dear Mr. Employer:

I am writing to express my interest in the Technical Writer position you posted recently on your website. With over four years of writing experience, I believe that I offer the skills and experience you seek. Moreover, I am a self-motivated individual who is eager to prove myself and make a significant contribution to a company.

For the last six months, I have been working at a contracting and engineering firm writing and editing proposals, contracts, and requests for qualifications. Before then, I served as a Dean’s Assistant at San Diego State University, where I earned my Bachelor degree in English. I have experience in a variety of work environments – from a Silicon Valley start-up to the world of academics. I feel that these experiences have proven my adaptability and honed my communication and interpersonal skills.

I would be more than happy to make myself available to meet with you at anytime to further discuss my background and your company’s needs. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Sincerely yours,

James C. Doe
