I am sending this letter in response to your advertisement published in the India Daily newspaper recently. I would like to apply for your vacant position of news reporter and I have sent with this letter a copy of my resume. As per your advertisement, I fit your qualifications and I believe that I will be able to fill the position suitably. I am a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Journalism from a reputed school where I graduated with honors. I have had experience working as an intern of a local paper for a year after graduation. As an intern, I gathered news data and interviewed concerned individuals and wrote news articles which were also published. This and my educational background have given me skills and knowledge I need to be a reporter. I hope to discuss with you my credentials fully at your convenient time. Thank you and I hope for your positive response.
