I am very interested in the senior copywriter’s assistant position at Flow Company, as advertised on LinkedIn. I am currently working as a freelance copywriter, and my portfolio is attached below. The skills and discipline I have gained from working on my own, make me an ideal candidate for this job
Before turning to freelance I’ve worked as a copywriter for another company. During my time at the company, I acquired strong writing and editing skills. My co-workers and I often collaborated on projects, and we had multiple chances to work in teams.
This helped me sharpen my brainstorming skills to come up with many creative ideas. Also, I was praised for my ability to accept constructive criticism and alter my writings accordingly.
I’ve written many types of copy over time. Ranging from headlines, landing pages, blog posts, and Instagram ads. I am especially proud of my skill in writing hooks. Hooks can be used wherever, and their purpose is to literally tease and “hook” the reader in to read more.
Thank you for taking the time to consider me as a Copywriter for Flow. I am excited to learn more about the company, and I look forward to hearing from you.
