ATTN: Marketing Communications Specialist
Dear Mr./Ms. Employer,
I am responding to your job posting placed on LinkedIn’s website. After reviewing the job description, I believe my academic and leadership background in news reporting/writing and editing makes me an ideal candidate for your job.
Since 2016, I have been a member of the university’s newstation staff where I constantly apply classroom knowlewtocdge to real world applications. In this environment, I work with a small team of reporters as well as a larger production crew to produce 4 newscasts a week. My ability to work with the team members to edit and write copy while always meeting strict deadlines would be an asset to your company.
As a student-athlete at a Division 1 school, I have gained skills such as the ability to handle multiple interruptions and adjustments to priorities throughout the day, the ability to adjust my schedule and/or work overtime when necessary, and excellent, time-management and leadership skills. I am a team player and proactive. I also work well under stress and deadlines.
My résumé is enclosed, but I look forward to meeting with you in person to discuss how my skills and experience would benefit your company. Please contact me at 704-***-**** or firstname.lastname@example.org at your convenience. Thank you for your time and consideration.
