My name is Joseph Taylor and for the past eight years, I have been a freelancing copywriter. The work I do is both rewarding and a source of personal and professional growth, and I’ve enjoyed this time immensely. More recently though, I’ve had the sense that now is the right time to move on and try something new. I’ve only been waiting for the right job to come along.
When I read about the editor position at [Company Name], I realized that this was exactly the opportunity I’d been waiting for!
I’m confident that I would excel at this job!
There are several factors that I believe make me a good fit for this job:
First of all, I am confident that my previous work experience makes me well suited for the job. My role as a copywriter has helped me grow in several key ways, and the experience I’ve gained coordinating designers, photographers, writers and artists has strongly contributed to my professional development. In addition to this, my earlier work as proofreader at [Former Employer], has equipped me with the skills necessary to succeed in the role as editor.
Secondly, I feel that my educational background makes me well suited for a job at [Company Name]. I have a Bachelor’s degree in journalism from Santa Clara University and I have also completed a course in SEO and digital marketing.
Last, but perhaps most importantly, I believe that my personal qualities and abilities are a good match for what you at [Company Name] look for in an employee. The people I have worked with would probably describe me as organized, cooperative and creative. I have often had use for my uncompromising approach to quality, and I am a person who’s generally able to easily determine how my actions affect the bigger picture of an operation.
I hope that this brief presentation of who I am has been of interest to you, and that I will be afforded the chance of an interview with you. I am convinced that I would be able to meet and exceed your expectations of an editor, and I would relish the opportunity to prove it.
