Mr. John Smith,
Human Resources Manager
The Bergen Gazette

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.
