Subject Line of Email Message: Editorial Assistant Position - Jane Jones

Email Message:

Dear Hiring Manager,

I would like to express my interest in a position as editorial assistant for your publishing company.

As a recent graduate with writing, editing, and administrative experience, I believe I am a strong candidate for a position at the 123 Publishing Company.

You specify that you are looking for someone with strong writing skills. As an English major, a writing tutor, and an editorial intern for both a government magazine and a college marketing office, I have become a skilled writer with a variety of experience.

My maturity, practical experience, and eagerness to enter the publishing business will make me an excellent editorial assistant. I would love to begin my career with your company, and am confident that I would be a beneficial addition to the 123 Publishing Company.

I have enclosed my resume, and will call within the next week to see if we might arrange a time to speak together.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration.


Jane Jones
