Dear Ms. Snodgrass:

Thank you for inviting me to interview for the assistant copy editor position at your Portland office on Thursday June 16th. I appreciated the relaxed atmosphere that you provided during the interview and left with an even stronger desire to be a part of your team.

As we discussed, school-wide readership increased by 15 percent during my term as editor of the Western Wire, Ontario College’s student newspaper. I am confident that my skills, experience, and education in journalism would make me a positive contributing member of your organization.

Thank you for your time and attention. I look forward to hearing from you soon. You can reach me at 555.555.5555.

Respectfully,

Nancy Carter
