Dear Mr. Smith,

I have taken the liberty to write to you, the Editor in Chief,  because I believe that you may be interested in my services.

I am ___ years old, single, a graduate of  _____________ University with a degree/course of  ___________.  During my school days, I have been a consistent contributor to the college newspaper and served as Assistant Editor on my last year in college.

After graduation, I worked three years with the Specialist Newspaper  in the Assistant Editor’s office. My work comprised editing manuscripts, helping in interviewing prospective featured persons, discussing with the Assistant Editor about different types of manuscripts, and doing research and rewriting of some of those approved manuscripts.

For the last three years, I have been Assistant Editor at Phoenix House.  In this capacity, I have handled a great deal of the featured articles that were published in our magazine.  I have worked with authors, consultants, publishers, advertising firms, and many more.  Through these efforts, the firm was able to publish more materials and was able to reduce expense on editing of manuscripts accepted for publication.

Although my relations in my present position are mutually pleasant, I feel that I can use my ability to a better advantage if I am given the chance to work with your firm.

I would sincerely appreciate the courtesy of an interview at your convenience.  I shall look forward to receiving a phone call or an email from you soon.

Yours sincerely,
