Mr. Greg La Montagna
GLE Creative Talent Inc.
155 North Michigan Suite 520
Chicago, IL 60601
Dear Mr. La Montagna,
I am writing to express my strong interest in GLE’s advertised opportunity for an Associate
Medical Writer in the Chicago area. I feel that I would be an ideal candidate for this position
because I enjoy and excel at communicating complex scientific ideas in a clear and concise
manner.
My experience and interests meet your needs in the following ways:


Written communication skills: I have authored five peer-reviewed scientific journal
articles, including four where I am first-author. I have prepared abstracts, posters, and
slide presentations for conferences, seminars, and group meetings in both industrial and
academic settings, making extensive use of MS Word and other programs to do so.



Verbal communication skills: I have delivered oral research and teaching presentations
for various audiences, including undergraduate students in an organic chemistry course,
graduate students and faculty, and a major food ingredients manufacturer’s research
department. I connect well with others in one-on-one and small group settings. My
excellent interpersonal skills are evidenced by my high assessment scores as a teaching
assistant while at Purdue University.



Scientific expertise: I have first-hand experience in the obesity and oncology
therapeutic areas, drug discovery, clinical development, and toxicology. My previous
roles involved extensive data analysis and interpretation to create compelling research
narratives for varying audiences, and necessitated excellent time management and
organizational skills.

I will gladly travel to Chicago for an interview, and I am open to relocating to that area. Thank
you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
Sincerely,

Daniel E. Beck, Ph.D.
