Mr. Scott Campbell, Managing Editor
Corpus Christi Caller-Times
P.O. Box 9136
Corpus Christi, TX 78469-9136
Dear Mr. Campbell:
As a result of our phone conversation on January 31, I am sending you my resume as you
Requested. I have also taken the liberty of attaching a sample of my writing. I was encouraged to
contact you after speaking with my high school journalism teacher, Mr. Bill Jenkins, who has ties
with Ms. Sally Smith of your organization. As I mentioned in our discussion, I am currently a
student at Stanford University and am very interested in journalism, advertising, and graphic
design. I am seeking an opportunity to develop and utilize my skills and qualifications in a paid
summer internship, doing whatever work possible. Growing up in Corpus Christi, the Caller-
Times has always been part of my life. Now that I am older I have come to respect it as a
professional service vital to our community, and am now eager to enlist and gain insight into the
career I dream of holding.
My passion for journalism has only grown with time. As a Managing Editor of Hoofbeat, my high
school’s national award-winning newspaper, I collaborated with fellow editors and managed a
staff of nearly 30 younger writers as part of the overall process of overseeing production of the
newspaper from conception to publication. As my resume indicates, I have demonstrated strong
leadership and undergone extensive training through active participation in academic and
professional organizations. In my effort to fully develop these important skills, I will continue to
serve as a Layout Designer for The Stanford Scientific, the only full-color publication on campus
for the duration of this academic year. I hope to gain the position of Head of Production in the
years ahead.
In addition to my experience in journalism, my instruction includes coursework in statistics,
psychology, and persuasive writing, and experience fielding phone calls and collecting data. My
education has honed the writing, planning, organization, and presentation skills that I believe are
essential to working in communications. I am excited about the many aspects of the journalism
world and welcome the prospect of discussing opportunities to explore them in your company. I
will follow up in a week to answer questions you may have or provide additional information. In
the meantime, should you have questions, I can be reached at 650-555-5555or email:
sjohnson@stanford.edu.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Sincerely,
Sarah Johnson
