Mr. John Bevins
CBS Television Network
Human Resources
51 West 52nd Street
New York, NY 10019
Dear Mr. Bevins:
As a former U.S. Whitewater Kayak Team member, I have competed at a world-class level in my
respective sport, something I could not have done without discipline and hard work. As a senior in
American University’s School of Communication, I plan to apply the same determination that
made me an accomplished athlete in my future broadcasting career. I have focused my education
on working in news, non-fiction, and documentary television production and I am seeking entry-
level employment with CBS.
Through my minor in International Politics and attending school in Washington, DC, I have both
knowledge and interest in public affairs, politics, and international relations. During courses in
both visual communications and foreign policy analysis, I have developed skills in written, oral,
and multimedia expression as well as analytical skills - all critical to working in the news and non-
fiction television industry.
As a production assistant for Story House Productions in Washington, DC, I worked closely with
journalist Peter Bergem (CNN Terrorist expert and author of Holy War, Inc.) as well as the
executive producer and producer researching global terrorism for the Discovery Times Channel
feature, Al Qaeda 2.0. Because of the small, intimate nature of the company, the producers relied
on me to fill multiple roles without being asked and with minimal supervision, giving me diverse
exposure in television production and experience working in a high-pressure environment.
I would describe myself as a technically competent person and a quick learner who is comfortable
working with the many tools of television production. This expertise explains why many of the
producers at Story House Productions relied on me for tape handling and duplicating as well as
computer-related issues. I work well under pressure and become engrossed in whatever subject I
am pursuing. My passion lies in non-fiction visual storytelling and the process and research that
go into it. I would like to apply this passion to a career with CBS.I have enclosed my resume and I
am available to begin work in early December. If you have any questions or need additional
information, please contact me at 292-888-7654 or by email at swilliams@hotmail.com.
Sincerely,
(signature)
Sarah L. Williams
