Date: May 1, 2005.

Mr. John Smith,
Human Resources Manager
The Bergen Gazette
257, Park Avenue South,
New York, NY 12345-6789.

Dear Mr. Smith:

I am very interested in your entry-level reporting job. Crime, politics, corruption, poverty. I've covered them all and want to keep doing it at the Anyplace Tribune. I am graduating next month from the master's journalism program at New York University.

Throughout my school years I have held internships at daily newspapers, most recently at the New York Daily News. As a reporter on the Daily News city desk, I covered the gamut of stories that make up city life. I have also worked in smaller markets: At The (Nashua, NH) Telegraph, I pitched an idea for a profile of a New Hampshire working family on the verge of becoming homeless. I wrote the story and it wound up on the front page. I would bring the same strong work ethic and passion for reporting to the Anyplace Tribune. I know that your paper has been pushing for excellence in recent years, and I would love to be part of that drive.

Please find enclosed my resume, references and clips. I will call you next week to see whether we might set up a personal interview. Thank you for your consideration.


Richard Anderson.

I now look forward to the possibility of working with The Winns News to develop some expertise in the field I intend to pursue upon graduation. During the week of May 12, 2003, I will call to arrange an interview. In the meantime, should you have any questions; you can reach me at (617) 555-1331.

I later moved to a global platform when I joined Today's Times. I have being working with this publication for the past two years but unfortunately could not continue as I am moving my base to North Carolina owing to family commitments.

I would like to say that the job of a reporter trills me and I love the kind of exposure the job offers. I also feel that I am a perfect fit to your job requirements as I am always ready to cover interesting news at any point of time.

Please feel free to call me on the above number at your convenience. I would be glad to meet you for an interview to take it further. I appreciate your time and consideration. Hope to hear from you soon.
