Dear Sir,
Re: Vacancy for Post of Reporter
Having  obtained  a  university  degree  and  some invaluable experiences overseas as a reporter, I am inquiring  as to  whether  you  have  any   suitable vacancies in The Straits Times.

My interest in journalism developed  while  I  was studying English at a British University’s “Students News” but later I became one of the editors.

After I graduated, I spent three months as a reporter for  “The Evening News”,  one of the  provincial  daily newspaper. Working alongside experienced reporters, I learned, for example, how to focus a story on a point of human interest and how to interview people sensitively when they are under stress after a disaster has occurred.

Now that I have  returned to Singapore, I  naturally wish to pursue a journalistic career with The Straits Time.

I am    enclosing  my resume for your information and would value the opportunity of discussing with you at your earliest convenience the possibility of employment.
Sincerely,
