Application for the role of Media Officer
I would like to apply for the role of Media Officer which I have seen advertised in (where) and (when).
I have had (how many years) experience in media life, having worked at (where doing what and for how long). I thoroughly enjoy working in media and get a real buzz out of the working environment, the deadlines and the challenges for different stories and news feeds.
I always wanted to work in Media and was very lucky to get a role as a gap year at university where I got to find out about most departments in (what particular company). I got my first role when I graduated and have done a mix of roles within media and feel that I am now ready to take on more responsibility and have people reporting to me.
I thoroughly enjoy researching and following up information and stories, I like to talk to people and find out what I can and I also like to write different articles.
I am a strong communicator who enjoys working in this industry. I have enclosed my CV for you to look through. Should you be interested in my skills and experience, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV and I look forward to hearing from you.
Good luck with writing your application letter.
