Richard's resume


COVER LETTER

Summary


There are times when a resume' is the most inadequate of vehicles to encapsulate one's life's experiences and abilities. Nevertheless, being the only ‘game in town’, the accompanying resume' will attempt to do so. As an early retired "baby boomer" I find that I am not quite ready for the trek to the "elephant graveyard" and sit before the television to vegetate. Therefore, I offer the following "pluses" not enumerated in the résumé' as inducement for your consideration: I have excellent communication skills, a people person, self-starter, goal oriented, quick study, effective manager of staff and public relations and a loyal team player. I am a teacher. I look to hear from the organization at your earliest convenience. Thank you

Richard Hammond
