I read your newspaper advertisement last week regarding the vacant post for news reporter in your company. I believe that I possess the qualities you are looking for in a news reporter and I would like to apply for the job.
I am a Journalism graduate from a prestigious university and I also have additional units of advanced journalism courses. As a student, I was editor-in-chief of the university publication and I spent a few months of hands-on experience in a publishing company. Aside from this, I have attended several trainings on journalism and news writing. I have a love for writing and have good interpersonal skills needed for effective journalism.
I hope to personally discuss more of my credentials with you. I have attached my resume for your perusal. Please contact me at (801) 621 4670 for inquiries.
