I am writing to apply for the Editor in Chief position with the New Parkland Gazette. I am a media professional with eight years of newspaper experience including editing duties. I am currently employed as Editor in Chief with the Rockland Times where I manage the workings of the newspaper staff assign and approve stories proofread and make last-minute changes to print when news breaks.
I thrive on a fast-paced working environment and have a high-energy personality. I love to share community state national and world news with my readers and I work tireless to obtain an accurate story. The experience I have gained thus far in the newspaper business has taught me the importance of being thorough; I do not cut corners and always place emphasis on putting out a quality publication. The papers under my command have won a number of awards for journalism. I would be thrilled to have the chance to bring my professionalism and experience to the staff of the New Parkland Gazette as your Editor in Chief.
