A Freelance Transcriptionist Sample Cover Letter

When emailing your resume to inquire or apply to a freelance transcription job, your email should resemble a cover letter. Using a cover letter is not only professional, but it is a great way to provide the employer with information that is not captured on a resume, such as specific characteristics that you have that you feel makes you a good fit for the position.  Here is a sample cover letter:


Good Evening,

While visiting Craig’s List, I read your job posting looking for freelance transcriptionists with great interest. I feel that my experience as a transcriptionist, blogger, writer, and editor, with the ability to meet strict deadlines, would prove to be an asset to your transcription team.

I have transcribed for several companies and I am familiar with various formats and styles, always keeping the client’s best interest in mind. I am highly organized, detail orientated, and I am a quick learner, which are beneficial characteristics to have in this industry.

I have attached my resume for your review. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, my information is below.
I look forward to hearing from you.
