Dear Mrs. Smith,
I would like to apply for the position of Technical Writer announced in the November issue of the Technology Review. My extensive writing experience will be an asset to your progressive company.
My broad area of expertise covers freelance writing, newspaper and magazine copyrighting, and editing. At present, I am employed as a writer at the Technical Department of Computer World, Inc. I am responsible for the management of software documentation to be used by Sony manufacturers. The types of documentation we provide cover: system requirements, architecture and design, technical reports, marketing strategies, and end user guides.
During the course of my studies in Journalism at the University of Chicago, I held an editorial position at the university magazine. I edited a diverse pool of articles and publications. My responsibilities included content, style, and grammar editing, resource verification, and submission of editorial publications.
At ABC, Ltd., I prepared press statements for new products and news releases for scheduled events, awards, and accomplishments.
