Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name:
I am currently a senior at Yale University seeking a full-time position with the Random House Associates Program. 代写cover letter
I am excited and appreciative of Random House’s fierce dedication to respecting artistic independence and commitment to developing new technologies for the publishing industry; yet what initially attracted me to the opportunity to be involved with Doubleday Broadway and Knopf Publishing Group, imprints whose books I relish reading.
I have grown up amidst the words of Margaret Atwood and have savored Bill Bryson’s colorful accounts of his adventures in the woods and the world. The Associates Program especially appeals to me as I would appreciate time to explore various facets of the publishing industry before committing myself to a specific department. Eight years of experience in high school and college newspaper journalism have instilled in me a healthy respect for the printed word and for the word that it takes to transform ideas into finished texts. I have the necessary experience, ambition, and love of books to contribute significantly to the world of Random House.
My work as an editorial intern at Psychology Today magazine, during which I wrote four nationally published articles, exposed me to the daily routines of magazine journalism. 代写cover letter
In my amateur newspaper journalism experience I often devoted as many hours a week to my work as I would have committed to a fulltime job. Through my various editorial positions at the Yale Herald I have learned how to thrive under pressure, meet deadlines, communicate with coworkers and business affiliates, function as part of a cohesive team, and conduct effective interviews with professors, students, researchers, and other professionals. These skills coupled with a proficiency in word-processing, internet research, page design, and layout make me particularly well suited for work in the publishing industry. 代写cover letter
My leadership experience as a newspaper editor was augmented this past summer by a month-long backpacking course with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). The curriculum focused on instruction in wilderness leadership skills, and for the duration of the month I worked closely with the other students on my trip to accomplish tasks such as planning routes and navigating through off-trail wilderness.
Toward the end of the course I was chosen as one of two student leaders of a three-day-long, off-trail traverse in the Olympic Mountains, independent of our two instructors. 代写cover letter
In the mountains I cooperated with others out of inclination, necessity, and shared purpose. The experience imparted to me invaluable skill both in the task of leading and in the necessary compromise that is essential to working on a team.
I am excited about becoming part of the process by which rough drafts travel to bookstore shelves and finally into my own hands. I am confident in my ability to contribute to Random House, and have enclosed my resume for your review. Thank you for your consideration.
