Personal Summary

Hello to the Recruiting Team at JobsForCatholics!

I am Savio Dlima, a Professional Content Editor and Proofreader with 5 years of experience from
India. I am applying for the post of Proofreader after coming across your website. I have a 
passion for the English language, be it reading, writing, or proofreading! I love words, structures, 
jargon, and everything related to it. As a dynamic proofreader, I love correcting, arranging, and 
structuring texts in formats, making them coherent and readable. My former teaching profession 
made me very disciplined and structured in my approach to reading or writing. I have 
comprehensive knowledge of the writing processes and am acutely aware of proactive editing 
techniques. I execute professionalism in stressful situations and maintain accuracy, 
professionalism, and supportive productivity after long, strenuous hours.

I worked with CIIE Initiatives for 2 years (2018-2020) as a Content Editor, Proofreader, and 
Part-Time Writer, during which I edited and proofread the material and wrote according to the 
prescribed editorial style and format standards. I proofread manuscripts and other forms of 
business copy for general grammatical correctness. I coordinated with marketing, 
communications, and other departments to align documentation needs. Not to mention, I also 
helped in copy-editing support to hit target sales and suggested editorial and design 
productions/edits with print and digital material.

I have been working as a Freelance Proofreader and Content Editor for various projects since 
2020. I have proofread and translated entrepreneurial, academic, and political editorial texts 
from English sources, paying particular attention to punctuation marks, grammar, and style. I 
have knowledge of style guides (Chicago, AP), and I utilize a house style guide to ensure a level 
of consistency across projects. I successfully use Google Suite, MS Office, Adobe Creative Suite, 
and WordPress to design, format, layout, and produce various printed and electronic materials.
The position as a Proofreader seems to be an excellent match for my skills and interests. I 
believe that my attention to detail and strong command of the English language make me an 
effective Proofreader. I have a keen eye for spotting errors, both grammatical and typographical. 
I am also able to identify any inconsistencies in style or formatting quickly.

In addition, I possess excellent communication skills, which allow me to effectively communicate 
with editors on any changes that need to be made. I understand the importance of accuracy and 
take pride in ensuring all documents are error-free before publication. I am highly organized 
with strict adherence to deadlines. Finally, I am well-versed in the latest software programs and 
tools used in the industry, allowing me to work efficiently and accurately. 

Thank you for taking the time to view my application.

Looking for a positive reply from you!

Savio Dlima
