Dear Mr. Jenkins:
The Wall Street Journal says that PDF Productions is expanding operations into Kansas,
Minnesota, and Nebraska. My experience in technical writing, design, and computers would be an
asset to your expanding organization.
While working at a local animal shelter, I used my technical writing skills to create a Web site that
allows users to easily access information. To improve the Web site, I conducted usability tests
which provided useful feedback that I incorporated to modify the overall design. In addition, I was
also responsible for writing and editing the shelter's monthly newsletter, which was distributed to
roughly 1,200 "Friends of the Shelter." I have extensive computer and design skills, which I am
anxious to put to use for PDF Productions.
Coursework has also prepared me well for technical writing. I have written technical material on a
variety of levels ranging from publicity flyers for the animal shelter to scientific reports for upper-
level science courses. My course-work in statistics has shown me how to work with data and
present it accurately for various audiences. Because of my scientific background, I also have a
strong vocabulary in both life sciences and chemistry. This background will help me get up to
speed quickly with clients such as ChemPro and Biostage. My background in science has also
taught me just how important specific details can be.
In May, I will complete my degree from the University of Kansas and will be most interested in
making a significant contribution to PDF Productions. I am available every Monday, Wednesday,
and Friday for an interview (785-897-1534). I look forward to talking with you about technical
writing I can do for PDF Productions.
