Dear Ms. Mumford:
As a student in American University’s School of Communication and its Department of Literature,
I am focusing on writing and the media. After seeing your Editorial Internship posted in AU
CareerWeb, I am eager to apply the research and writing skills I have gained to benefit your
organization. I am especially interested in working with your nonpartisan foundation because it is
dedicated to free press and free speech. Through coursework in both communication and
literature, I have developed skills in written, oral, and multimedia expression—all critical to
working in journalism. As the chief editor of American Literary, the bi-annual 50 75 page AU
student literary magazine and as a School of Communication teaching assistant evaluating
students’ written work, I have strengthened my editorial skills.
Through the course, Writing for Mass Communication, I strengthened my knowledge of basic
techniques of news writing. In addition, my varied work experiences, ranging from program
coordination to waiting tables, have helped me become proficient in dealing with the public and
working under pressure.
Enclosed are my resume and writing samples for your review. I am available to start work the
week of May 15. I will contact you the week of March 18 to follow up on my application. In the
meantime, if you have any questions or need additional information, please contact me at 202-
555-5555 or by e-mail at <robin@american.edu>.
