Dear Mr. Wilde,
I was filled with excitement when I read your advertisement for graduate recruitment at your publishing company. I felt that I fitted perfectly into the criteria of graduates you are looking for.
My qualifications are in English Literature with specialization in Modern Literature. I have worked as a correspondent reporter for the local daily newspaper for a period of one year as I studied for my degree. This helped me apply my book learning to real life.
I have enclosed my CV and copies of my official transcripts for your consideration. I look forward to working for you.
