RE: Data Entry Specialist

Dear Employment Team,

I would like to express my interest in the Data Entry Specialist posting with Speed Shopwise and pursue the opportunity to apply my skills. 

When reviewing the job description, I was thrilled to discover how well my experience aligns with your needs and requirements. I am drawn to apply because, from reading your company's website, I feel your core mission and culture suit what I offer as a professional.

As an adept Business Owner/Operator, I have a well-rounded background in data reporting and refined talents in data collection and data reporting, which make me an ideal fit for the position. Additionally, I am a proven expert in organization skills and a consistent collaborator. My previous roles have strengthened my abilities in time-management and communication, as well as my focused attention to detail and high accuracy.

I am wrapping up my 30 year career as a small business owner and am excited to start a new chapter.

My ideal start date would be October 20, 2020, but I am able to be flexible with that date if necessary.

I am thrilled at the prospect of bringing my talents to Speed Shopwise. Please contact me at your earliest convenience to further discuss how my work history and personality fit the Data Entry Specialist role.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
