Dear Mrs. Carmody,

I am applying with this cover letter and the included resume for your Journalist position at New York Times. I found this position advertised on, and knew that I should apply, as I match all your needs. I have therefore, attached a resume with this cover letter.

To be brief, I am your best bet for a Journalist. I have a Master’s Degree in Journalism from University of Alabama, and have been employed the past seven years in this role at The Advisory Board Company. I work well with people, have experience getting the juicy details, and am high energy. I have won awards in Journalism, have many contacts in the community, and love your newspaper’s integrity and message.

Please take a moment to review the enclosed resume for more details on my background. Call me at 333-270-5125 when you are finished. Thanks so much for your time.
