Dear Mr.Robin:

Please accept this as a letter of interest in a summer internship position at The Bergen Gazette. Prior to my senior year at The XYZ College, I would like the opportunity to further develop and hone the journalism skills I have acquired over the past three years. As a native of Bergen, I would enjoy gaining this experience at the Gazette.

As the News Editor, and then Features Editor of the Catalyst, The Colorado Collegeaus weekly student newspaper, I have been able to develop practical journalism knowledge. I have found the deadlines and responsibilities associated with these positions challenging and rewarding. During my term as a staff writer for the Catalyst, I acquired hands-on interviewing and writing skills. By assuming the position of Distribution Manager for Cutler Publications, I have experienced a side of journalism indirectly related to the newsroom. Prior to attending college, I was the Executive Editor of the Bergen Senior High School newspaper, The Highwaymen.

In addition to my practical experiences, my minor in Journalism has taught me the basic tenets of the trade. A supervised position on a citywide publication will allow me to apply what I have learned thus far in the field and in the classroom. My future plans include working for a newspaper for several years before attending graduate school. A summer internship at the Gazette would help round out my undergraduate journalistic experiences. Thank you very much for your time and consideration. I plan to arrive in Bergen the first week in May. If I can provide you with any additional information, please feel free to contact me at (123) 222-1123. I will look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

D. Jorge
