See attached I spend many hours on the computer for research and enjoy doing so and have the knowledge needed to do that as I do possess the knowledge and skills required. I also have customer service experience and equipment as noted. . . To Whom It May Concern: Attached is my resume applying for a position at home. Since my untimely retirement, I have kept up my typing skills by doing typing exercises online and using the Internet for many multiple hours per day and week. I had many items listed for sale at 4 auction sites and managed them for winning bidders and am well familiar with packing and shipping procedures. I answered questions in a professional manner that persons might have on items up for bid and handled any customer complaints (there weren’t many) and negotiate a settlement, if necessary. I am very motivated and it was expected on my prior typing positions to produce quality work with a fast turnaround time. Work was reviewed by quality unit before it was released and proofread for any errors. I am mostly self-taught on other computer programs (other than word processing) and enjoy new challenges to learn. If considered as a “new hire” I can assure you that I will and can work independent of direct supervision and produce only acceptable work. I can only hope that you will strongly consider me for this position. I feel that I would do a quality job as I am also experienced in research and followed rules and regs as set forth in Federal manuals and had guidelines in which to adjudicate a claim properly. In my prior job as an examiner , I encountered irate clients everyday and was trained in conflict resolution so I know how to handle that irate client there as well as in my jobs at NTI and Custom Loyalty. I feel that I would be a good candidate for this job as I am very well aware of details, work well under pressure and have the ability to work without direct supervision and can follow directions. My VR counselor is Jean Hansen, , LRS, 3651 Cedarcrest. Baton Rouge, La. 70601, 225-295-8900 or 1-800-737-2959, Please feel free to contact me via telephone, e-mail or USPS. Thank you for your time.

the most significant impact was to work my claims with accuracy and speed. We attempted to give world class service to all clients and male them feel we cared and their situation was understandable. I had to sometimes diffuse a potentially volatile situation.
