Robert S. Montana
Dear Mr. Montana:
I am a 2001 journalism graduate of the University of Southern Indiana, Evansville, and seek a job as a reporter. Enclosed are my resume, a list of references, and six clippings.
I have worked very hard at a tough academic schedule, and I have served diligently in several college activities. I have worked for two years as a reporter and editor for the school's student newspaper, The Shield. I have been an active leader within several active organizations, including the Journalism Club and the Activities Programming Board. Also, as my resume indicates, I have a 3.3 GPA overall.
If provided the opportunity, I will show the same zeal and dedication to reporting for The Colorado Sun as I have as a student.
Please read my clippings and evaluate my resume. Please also examine my Web site which is listed on the resume. I welcome the opportunity for an interview and a chance to show you what I can do.
Thank you very much for your consideration.
Hopeful A. Journalist
