I am writing to apply for the position of the writer for your Young People’s Magazine. I saw it advertised in yesterday’s newspaper.
I am 20 years old and I am currently studying philosophy at University. I am good at writing and I have very good ideas. At University I have learnt a lot about writing and I have read a lot of books. I have a rich vocabulary and a great way of expressing myself.
I have no experience in journalism but I am willing to learn. I have written many articles in a school newspaper and the newspaper sold very quickly. If you hire me you will not be disappointed.
I will be available for an interview any weekday morning. My telephone number is 6994977953. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you.
