  1. I’m not sure how good I am at writing cold-contact cover letters, given that I’ve never done it, but I do believe I’m an excellent editor / second pair of eyes. I also have tons of free time on my hands these days. Feel free to email me if I can be of any service at all!

    I’m an excellent editor also. I’ll be glad to help in any way I can.

  3. I saw it and think it is very impressive!!! Cannot wait to chat with you about it.

    I’d also be happy to run eyes over your resume/cover letter if you’d like. It’s nice to be able to let my tech writing/human resources skills out of the stable to stretch their legs. And if I can help you I would very much like to be able to do so.

    Get rid of the “snow day” part, leave it as online courses.
