Dear Mr. Hiccup —

Your publication produces more than 10,000 stories a year. Each of these stories are in-depth, wide, knowledgeable, well-researched, and high-production value. Without an Editorial Assistant who knows how to alleviate the administrative tasks from an editorial team and editorial process, that quality cannot be achieved. That's what I feel I do the best. Here is what I've been able to accomplish:

Assisted more than 3 editors with both online and offline editorial staff needs.
Assisted with all coordination, scheduling, assigning, and reviewing of editorial material.
Played a pivotal role in the direction giving process for all staff writers on behalf of our editor in chief.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.
