Subject: Application for position of editor


Dear Ms Hetcher,

I was very pleased to find the vacancy for the position of editor on your website. Ever since I have been studying journalism, I’ve set myself a very specific goal: contribute to the production of children’s news. Therefore I’d like to apply for this editorial function.

In The Netherlands there’s a program for children’s news called Jeugdjournaal. Just like Newsround, its purpose is informing children about everything that’s happening in the world. Reporting to children requires a specific approach. During a short traineeship at Jeugdjournaal I turned out to be a very capable text writer for this target group.

This job vacancy seems to be the chance of a lifetime. All over the world, Newsround is highly respected for the way they produce children’s news. I think I can be a true contribution to the production of this program. Next to writing texts, I have a lot experience with AVID and I’m used to work with different kinds of cameras. The production of an item independently will not be a problem at all. I’m also convinced that it’s always valuable to have someone working in your editorial office with experience in another European country.

To sum up I find myself a suitable applicant for this vacancy and I think I meet the requirements. Therefore I hope that you will give me the opportunity to give an extended explanation of my Curriculum Vitae in a future meeting. Additional education and qualification characteristics are summed up in my resume.


Yours sincerely,


Lela van Dijck

    Goed voorbeeld, maar er wordt gebruik gemaakt van afkortingen als I’d wat in een sollicitatiebrief voluit moet worden geschreven.
