Sub :- Application for the position of reporter
At the outset I am writing this letter to apply for the position of reporter in your valuable organization in correlation to your advertisement on 29th April 2013 in your newspaper.
To tell you about myself I am an eager leaner with keen eye for detail who has the enthusiasm for exploring newspaper reporting. Since my school days I had always wanted to be a reporter on account of the challenges that this profession possesses. I have pursued my masters in Journalism from the University of London in the year 2011. In pursuit of this career I have been associated with a local newspaper media company “Markus News agency” for the past eighteen months after completion of my master’s degree. During this stint with this company I have been involved in researching and writing articles of varied nature, class and reach on a daily basis.
On account of the strong background of reporting and my educational qualification I am a very suitable candidate for the position of reporter in your organization. I have attached my resume which provides more detailed information about my personal and educational details. My credentials can be obtained from my present employment company as well if need arises.
I am looking forward to getting an opportunity to be called for an interview at your organization shortly.
Sally J Bernett
