Dear or Madam:

You seek an interviewer to work from home and that just may be the ideal

match for me.

As my resume will detail, I am a very experienced human resources

professional with a substantial background in selection, training and

talent strategy.

I hold "administrator" status in DDI's Targeted Selection and have set up

interviewing systems for both Red Bull and I am

certified in several leading assessments, including the MBTI, Firo-B, TKI,

As I See Myself, and others.

I currently consult with both Lee Hecht Harrison and Talent Strategy and

Career Consultants, but would welcome additional work as the aforementioned

companies currently have me "on-call". I would have the most availability

after 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday (and weekends) which may be advantageous to

candidates who might be unavailable during the day. In any event, should

my background be in line with what you are looking for, let's talk.

All the best,

David Corbin
