Application for work from home

Hello, Future Employer, Following this letter, you will find my resume.

At 75 years of age, and mobility limited, I am seeking work which can be achieved from my home office. While I am limited, for those seeking carefully executed research in such diverse areas as Economic Games Theory, California Employment Law, Content Mining, online tutoring, background checking and Political Science, I may be just the person you are looking to hire. Having been in the position of having to decide among a number of job applicants, I know how difficult and painful the experience can be, and how often “Buyer’s Regret,” comes into play. With almost 3,000 page references on Google, more than 50 articles, White papers, membership on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, you have the advantage of learning not only what I am capable of, but whether I am a comfortable fit with your own perspectives, as they relate to your business. I look forward to hearing from you as to how I may be of assistance to your organization. Yours truly, Sherwin A. Steffin
