Dear Mr. Kevin O’Hanlon:
With a proven background as a technical writer combined with excellent consulting and proposal writing experience, I have delivered quality document solutions for top organizations in the Healthcare, Financial Services, and Technology industries. I possess a record of success analyzing business needs, then designing and creating winning RFP, RFI, and RFQ documents that boost corporate sales and improve the bottom line. Expert skills in planning, organization, time management, and communication have resulted in consistently delivering technical writing projects on time and on budget.
I possess an extensive background and expertise in designing and creating substantive documents that eliminate or reduce jargon in order to relay a clear, concise, and quality message. I believe that my unique background would be an excellent fit for your company. I am currently seeking to provide your organization with the above skills as your primary Technical Writer.
A sample of key contributions includes:
Successfully documented and streamlined back office procedures that were never documented previously, and redesigned existing forms to increase efficiency.
Completed large volumes of proposals with accuracy, maintaining high document quality in an extremely time sensitive environment.
Conducted gap analysis to determine areas where boilerplate narrative and program information is deficient and must be gathered to respond to questions accurately and comprehensively.
Planned, organized, and wrote multiple winning proposals for Prime Broker, Broker-Dealer, and Investment Advisor RFxs, DDQs, SLAs, and AIMA requests from financial institutions throughout the US and Europe.
As a detail oriented individual with a passion for excellence, I am adept at listening to clients’ needs, then analyzing and implementing the best designed solution. I am effective and comfortable communicating with all levels of stakeholders and senior management. I have proven experience as a successful virtual associate and telecommuter. I have devoted my career to developing proven Technical Writing and Proposal Writing strategies in order to meet or exceed client expectations.
Please accept this letter and enclosed resume as an introduction to my skills and background. For a more detailed presentation of my offerings, feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience to schedule a conference. Thank you in advance for your consideration and I look forward to our conversation.
