Hire Me 2013: My Cover Letter and Resume

Good morning/afternoon/evening/night,

My name is Terrence Moss. I am submitting myself to be considered for a position with your company. I come to you with nearly a decade of diversified media experience in TV advertising.

Following a layoff in July of 2011, I took time off to write full-time, which culminated with a self-published book of ongoing short story pieces that I had previously been writing for my blog and website.

I just relocated to the San Francisco area from Los Angeles and am looking for long-term full-time work. I am an enthusiastic self-starter ready to actively contribute ideas to your organization. I have great interpersonal skills and am equally comfortable as part of a team or working independently.  I require very little oversight once I am up to speed on processes and I make the most of any position I hold.

My previous experience, though not specialized in any one area, can be utilized in whatever ways will be of most benefit to the organization. 

I can be reached at my phone number. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
