To Whom It May Concern

Attached is my resume covering my 23 year career at Chrysler Corporation. Majority of that time was spent in the Graphic Services Department, beginning as a Supervisor, ending as a Manager. I was offered an early retirement in June 2007 and accepted the offer. I am actively searching for a second career in the Graphic Arts field.

Prior to my career at Chrysler, I spent 10 years working at a family owned commercial print shop in Highland Park, MI, then 5 years at American Motors as a bindery/mailing supervisor. I was laid off from AMC in 1981 and for three years worked in small print shops in the Detroit area until offered a position at Chrysler in 1984.

My career centered around bindery operations, starting out as a delivery driver and packager, leading to folders, Baum, Stahl, cutters Polar, various collators and saddle stitchers, Rosbach, Muller Martini, and Kolbus perfect binders. If additional information is required please contact me at the number listed.

I am available for an interview at your convenience. I can be reached at 586-***-****.
