Application for a Media Researcher
I have recently seen your advert for a Media Researcher advertised in (where) on (when) and I would be very interested in applying for this role.
I graduated from University or I did (what) at college and decided that I would like to go into the
world of Media. I have always been good at researching and finding out information and combined with my love for television, radio and all things media I feel that I would be good in this kind of role.
In my previous roles (or through a gap year at university or work experience, draw upon your experiences) I have always enjoyed researching and looking for information or people and find it very interesting to get a lead and continue with it until you come to hopefully a satisfactory end.
I am a very confident person who is an excellent communicator. I enjoy working in a busy environment and love to work with other people, although I am more than happy working on researching projects on my own.
I have enclosed my CV which details my experiences and skill set but if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Alternatively I am also available to interview at short notice.
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 CV and Letter.
