1978年以前，我在贝克国际指南书(baker international guide book)担任助理编辑，主要职责是校对和重写，以及撰写长篇和短篇文章。
我还在食品领域的一份贸易杂志《乳制品周刊》(the dairy weekly)担任助理编辑，我的任务与上述类似，但也包括大量采访和与行业成员的个人接触。
i wish to apply for the position of editorial assistant advertised in .
i have had considerable editorial experience and am familiar with proofreading, rewriting, and production, as well as the more creative aspects of this type of work. i should like to summarize briefly my experience:
for two years i was employed as managing editor on an abc weekly newspaper having a circulation of about 30,000. here i did a great deal of original writing, wrote the headlines, and worked directly with the printer in setting up the paper.
previous to 1978 i worked as assistant editor in baker international guide book, where my duties consisted chiefly of reading proof and rewriting, as well as composing lengthy articles and shorter item.
i also worked as assistant editor on a trade journal in the food field the dairy weekly, where my tasks were similar to those described above, but also included a great deal of interviewing and personal contact with members of the industry.
all in all, i have had eight years of business experience, and am familiar with all phases of office routine. at present i am employed as promotion manager on an advertising magazine, the future of which is so uncertain as to make its employees desirous of securing a foothold in a more firmly established organization.
i was graduated from boston college in june, 1979 with honors, after six years of attendance in the evening session, while working full-time during the day. i majored in english literature and am continuing my studies in this field at present at thornton university, where i expect to receive my master’s degree in june, 1985. at boston i was for two years managing editor of the evening session newspaper.
as much as i should like to join your organization, it would not be advisable for me to do so for less that $9,500, which is my present salary.
