Dear Ms Crabbe,
I was thrilled to see that GenNext is hiring for the position of In-House Journalist on Reed.co.uk. I’m a determined and creative journalist with 7+ years of experience in news reporting and features writing. Given my extensive experience covering finance and business topics, I’d be an ideal addition to your newsroom.
Your job description mentions you’re looking for someone with sound knowledge of the financial markets and corporate law. As a journalist for Global, I wrote and published 10+ monthly articles on digital innovation, economic development, and fiscal policy. My well-timed and analytical coverage of these areas stimulated a 20% rise in unique page views during the two years I was in this position.
Additionally, I have experience in layout design that will be invaluable to your quarterly print publication, GenExclusive. Through the managerial experience I accumulated in my previous role at ShoutVox, I’m also adept at collaborating with media partners and developing advertorials, two skills you’re looking for in your next hire.
As a driven journalist with a keen eye on the financial sector, I share GenNext’s passion for providing entrepreneurs with unique, analytical coverage of the latest developments in the UK economy.
I’m convinced that the breadth of my newsroom experience makes me an excellent candidate for this role. At your earliest convenience, I look forward to meeting with you to discuss how I may benefit your team moving forward.
