Dear Ms Graham,
I am writing in response to your recent advert on Dayjob.com for an Editor. As someone who can offer a fresh approach to old ideas and who strives to continuously improve editorial standards, I feel I would be an ideal candidate for your position.
At the moment I am working for Central Publishers in a similar role to the one you are trying to fill. With them, my primary responsibilities are to research, write and commission news features, supervise the work of authors, and optimise digital content for social media platforms. My present employer is very satisfied with my work rate, and I am confident that I can bring the same level of high performance to your company. I can assure you that as a true professional I will have an immediate impact on every part of your business.
I come to you with a strong background in tracking the progress of editorial content through all stages of the publishing process. My experiences to date have fully equipped me with the skills needed to proof read copy, attend meetings with industry professionals, host events and much more.
Aside from my technical competencies, I am highly analytical, have good attention to detail and possess a can do attitude towards problems.
My career goal is to continue learning and developing my expertise, and to work for a firm such as yours that has a reputation for only employing the best.
I hope you do not mind if I call your office within the next few days to arrange an interview at your convenience.
In the meantime, thank you for your time and consideration.
