Dear Mr. Gidh,

I read the advertisement in your paper about your job vacancies and I would like to apply as a newspaper correspondent.  I believe that I fit the requirements of a newspaper correspondent well.  I have attached my resume for your perusal.

I am a Journalism graduate from an esteemed institution in the country.  I graduated with honors and was also recognized by the university for being a consistent reprentative of the school in various writing competitions.  My thesis was also selected as one of the outstanding thesis in the school.  I was editor-in-chief of the school paper for two years before I graduated.  Aside from this, I have attended several trainings on journalism and writing workshops.  These have helped me prepare well for a career in journalism and I wish to contribute my skills to your company.

Thank you and I hope for your positive response.

Sincerely,

Ms. Advika Chitturu
