    Hello! Your job offer seems interesting and I would like to apply. As a Belgian citizen, I am a native Dutch speaker. I am a 26 year old student, working towards a Masters Degree in Cultural Studies. Prior to this, I finished a Bachelors Degree in Journalism. Currently I'm working part time for the Japanese newspaper 'Mainichi Shimbun'. It is the third largest newspaper in Japan with more than 4 million readers. In my position as assistant to the Brussels correspondent, I manage interview contacts and appointments, I follow up press conferences and write down summaries in English. I have accompanied my chief editor many times to translate directly from English to Dutch, and vice versa in case of an interview with a non-English speaker. Besides that I translate Dutch written documents for him. During my studies as a journalist, I went abroad for 6 months to the north of Spain (the Basque Country) where I worked for the national media station EiTB. My job was to write news articles in English and French. I did another internship at a Belgian film magazine called 'Filmmagie'. My job was to write reviews and news articles, and to do proofreading and copywriting. Over the last year, I have done multiple translation jobs for Lingotek, a translation company. I did proofreading for multiple websites, and I'm hired as a freelancer on a regular basis. Besides that, I have written many articles, essays, papers, emails and more in English. I can honestly say I master the language quite well. Keywords to highlight my skills are speed, flexibility and accuracy. I'm available 24/7, and maintain good communication with my employers. Since I'm only writing my thesis this year, I want to open up some time to gain work experience, preferably something internationally flavored. Thank you for your attention and consideration. Regards, Michael Peeters  less

    A copywriter with 12 years' experience, I am a graduate from Berghs School of Communication in Stockholm. This is Sweden's premier marketing academy, only accepting a select few art direction and copywriting students each year. In 2001, my first year of studies, one of the lecturers, Steve Trygg of renowned B2B agency SandbergTrygg saw some of my work and immediately offered me full-time employment. Still wanting to graduate from Berghs, I ended up working part time at SandbergTrygg Stockholm head quarters, at the time Sweden's largest B2B agency, in parallel with my studies. Upon graduation, I took a full-time copywriter position with SandbergTrygg, working on accounts such as Telia, marketing everything from mobile selling solutions to trans-Atlantic fibre-optic network services; Saab Scania Trucks, producing internal policy manuals and giving strategic advice; and Neonet, selling electronic stock-trading software. In 2003, whilst on holiday in Australia, I came in contact with an advertising agency in Cairns, Adpower, who offered to sponsor my Australian residency. Loving Australia, I jumped at this opportunity, and soon found myself working on a mix of B2B and B2C accounts such as Stockland Shopping Centres, Tourism Tropical North Queensland, Pacific Toyota, Cairns Convention Centre and Medtel medical software. I stayed with Adpower until 2006, when I started my freelance business, and have since worked for clients such as Rio Tinto, The Maavarim Group, City West Water, R2 Human Resources, CEC Group, Mefoto, Mediapower, Coral Cay Weddings, Enteract and Ekarda. Since 2011, I am based out of Elwood, Melbourne, Australia. References are available on request. Most importantly, though, is this: IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH MY WORK, YOU DON'T PAY A CENT. You have zero to lose and stand to win a great asset for your organisation (speaking of which, don't forget to specify whether you want Australian English for your organisation or American English for your organization). As for my hourly rate, you get what you pay for. If you want mediocre copy at a dirt-cheap rate, go somewhere else. If you want excellent copy at an excellent rate, come to me. And contact me if your client's budget is tight or you need a fixed price. You will find that I am quite flexible when I am not too busy. Kind regards, Paul Walden  less

    Being a doctor is something really great, even more so because it allows me to continue one other great love--writing. Allow me to be of service by providing consultancy in medically-related fields, drafting medical articles and participating in research as a competent medical writer. I am also particularly interested as a technical writer in other areas other than medicine for both web and print. I have been part of a very competitive web solutions company geared on SEO and meaningful, fresh content for the web. As a technical writer, I've helped create content for company webpages, personal websites, niche articles and sales copies destined for traffic. I believe time is best spent crafting words to push forward an idea, motivate people or reach a particular goal. I hope I can assist you with whatever your goals are. .  less
