Dear Mrs. Kennedy,
I recently saw your opening listed on your website for a News Reporter. These documents are being submitted in order to put my name forward for this position. I know that my education and experience would bring your organization the best research skills and news reporting that you can find. I am highly organized and would be an asset to any news team.
My education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism with a minor in Criminal Justice. I have more than twelve years in news reporting and have worked for some prestigious news firms. I am seeking this position as my recent stint as a freelancer has not been very profitable due to the lack of work and the economy which is why I am seeking a more permanent position.
Any news team requires each member to do their background and research to ensure that the most relevant material is being reported. I am available for field or desk work and do not mind working off hours when needed.
I feel that a meeting between us would be in both of our interests. I would be prepared to bring samples of my work in any format that you require. I am available at your earliest convenience and can be reached by calling (111)-687-1886.
