Dear Mr. Bob,
I hereby present my resume in regards to your advertisement online for the post of Reporter. I have been seeking just a position such as this to challenge me with a larger audience. I have therefore included my resume of experience, and a couple of samples for your review.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in English Journalism from Dartmouth College, 2005. I also have over five years working as Reporter for New York Times in Saginaw, MI. From my days as an editor for my high school newspaper to my present role as key Reporter for my paper, I have had nothing but drive and dedication to articulate the truth to the public through careful and in-depth research and excellent writing skills. I grab attention and keep it. I am a skilled communicator, writer, and photographer; and bring very strong research and interpersonal skills to this position.
I look forward to meeting with you to see what you think of my work, as well as answering any questions on my background you may have. Call me at (555)-555-5555 to arrange a time to meet. Thanks so much for your time.
