Dear employer,

I currently live in Portland, Oregon. I am looking to relocate and move a direction where hard work and honesty are honored, where experience, knowledge is a plus and not a negative. So, if I can find a suitable position; example, you like what I do, you offer a living wage, and I like the company and culture, than I'll be their as long as I am needed.

I am seeking a full time position that fits my current financial responsibilities, which would be to cover my rent, auto, licenses and permits, supplies and food. Since I've spent the last few years working odd hours in the security field; I'd like to work during daylight hours, and a regular work week of 40 hrs (Monday through Friday). I understand though that if a need arose to work special shifts I would do what I could to step up (holidays, someone out sick, last minute order rush, etc.). I've done many other types of work and do not believe I should be pigeon holed into anyone type of career opportunity. I have 2 jobs that I haven't done yet that interest me, Beverage label design, or silk screen designs for apparel. I drive my own transportation, my vehicle will always be insured; I do not have criminal record, I am drug free. If their are certification requirements that I do not currently have and the position requires it I would obtain those certifications on my own dime.

I am easily accessible (I return my calls on days off), forthright and always professional. I was trained as an illustrator, worked in the print field for many years, and even did a three year stint as a radio host/producer/engineer of my own radio music show; so I have a diverse knowledge base which allows me to think outside the box. During my career I've had experience as a shift leader, trainer, manager and production staff and the last 7 years I've been in the security industry. If I start at the bottom and stay their I'm OK with that as long as it is a living wage.

I will relocate only for a serious long term opportunities! If you believe I am the person you are looking for, by all means contact me. I am open to working for small to large companies, as long as the philosophy is that you are only as good as you're people are and you treat those that you can depend on well.

Thank you for you're time and consideration,

D.J.
