*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hello Ned,

Thanks for all the work you do with Ned's Job of the Week. I heard

about it from Dr. Michael Thurwanger of Eureka College, my alma mater.

I know that I and other job searchers really appreciate your work on

this.

I thought I'd throw out a one paragraph pitch for you:

I have strong oral and written communication skills and would like to

put them to use helping a nonprofit organization whose mission I

support. I have six years experience with publishing newsletters and

five years experience with copy-editing the writing of others,

including working with the Youth Development Team at Child Trends in

Washington, D.C. to copy-edit different drafts of research papers and

information on child poverty for a U.S. Senate briefing. My degree is

in English Writing so I have a creative flair combined with a

professional writing style. I'm currently working through the

freelance website oDesk and made their list of Top 25 Providers for

March.

Take care,

Sarah Visser
