Cover Letter: Court Reporter
Application for a Court Reporter
I would like to apply for the position of Court Reporter which I have seen advertised in (where), (when). Please find enclosed my up to date CV which shows in detail my skills and experiences.
I have had a great deal of typing in real time and my last typing test showed my level to be 175 words per minute. I have researched into the role of a court reporter and understand that in court rooms, the typing is done on a stenograph machine and I feel that this is something I could adapt to very quickly and something I would be prepared to learn before I started a role.
I have always been praised for my excellent listening skills, inside and outside of work and feel that after taking minutes in boardroom situations and tribunal hearings that I would be able to keep up with the pace and context of most court cases.
I am very flexible about my hours of work and I currently do finish off pieces of work at home and would be happy continuing this to ensure accuracy.
I am a confident person, who strives to always achieve 100% accuracy; this is very important to me and is why I chose typing in these situations as my career.
If you have any questions that you would like me to answer or any formal tests to do, please do not hesitate to contact me and I shall be happy to assist.
Thank you for taking the time to read my application and I look forward to hearing from you.
