Sample Editor Cover Letter

The job seeker in this editor cover letter talks about her passion for the publishing industry. She enjoys supporting writers with good editing-reviewing, rewriting and making final changes to articles that will appear in print in a magazine or newspaper. She not only discusses her previous experience but asks for an opportunity to show her qualifications in person with the hiring manager. All editor cover letters should provide this kind of useful and professional information.

Dear Ms. Watson:

With this cover letter I am applying for the job of editor, which I saw posted on JobBankUSA.com. I started my career after college when I went to work for a small-town weekly, Las Virgenes Register, as an assistant editor. Now, five years later I would like to work full-time for your company. I'm familiar with the three magazines you publish and I believe I'd be a good fit for the Parents Today magazine.

I know that excellent editors are in short supply but I think you'll find me to be one that can deliver the highest quality work with energy and enthusiasm for the job. I like working with writers and would do my best to turn out outstanding articles for your readers.

Please call me on my cell phone: 888-888-8888 if you'd like to meet me in person and see a portfolio of articles I have edited for my previous employer. I look forward to meeting you.
