Guten tag! Buenos dis! Bonjour!I am happily sending you my resume in response to your newspaper advertisement. I was attracted to your linguist position as I am not only skilled in several languages but I have always had a passion for travel and international affairs. As my resume attests I have used my studies in language for a number of venues that authenticate my credentials and potential.
With a history that goes back 17 years I have worked as a linguist in both secondary and post-secondary education as well as in the publishing and computer industries. But a large portion of my work has entailed translating interpreting and consulting for libraries universities and more. I have traveled to several countries hired to study documents and other language related materials. I was a translator for a major consultancy firm assisting in the interviewing of delegates about diplomatic projects and humanitarian concerns. I speak German Spanish French Italian and have a solid grasp of Latin and other ancient languages.
Being a linguist has been an extremely rewarding profession and I believe your opportunity will only enrich my opportunities that much more. I look forward to meeting with you concerning the position.
