Dear Ms. Cook,
A friend in Minneapolis forwarded me your advertisement for a reporter at your paper. I have been seeking an opportunity to report for a larger paper and am aware of the fine reputation of the Twin Cities Times. I am therefore enclosing my resume and some clippings for your review.
As my resume indicates, I have been a newspaper reporter for Taylor Communications for several years, and my experience in journalism dates back to my high school and college years. Several of my articles for Taylor Communications were picked up by UPI and API. Also, I am a skilled photographer.
Thank you for your consideration of my application. I look forward to talking with you in the near future.
