Sample cover letter for Internship position at Ebury Publishing


Executive Assistant

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to apply for the position of Executive Assistant at Ebury Publishing as advertised recently by your social media pages. 

I am interested in Ebury Publishing because, as part of the Penguin Random House Group, it enjoys an unparalleled reputation in the field of publishing. I, like many others, found that Penguin Random House books, in their many imprints, have accompanied me throughout my life and I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to contribute in maintaining and reinforcing this legacy. The culture of the company has also been a contributing factor in my decision to apply. My research has shown me that your company values creativity, innovation and respect for the individual. In addition to having a great work environment, your company has a number of community projects which make Penguin Random House stand out above other publishing houses.

My enthusiasm to pursue a career in Rights arises from my interest in the revolutionary impact that technology has had on traditional mediums of communication. In particular, I have a great interest in the new forms of communication that have been created and the legal rights that go with them. Publishing had remained largely unchanged until the arrival of the Internet which has, not only created new opportunities for distribution through alternative outlets, but also novel products in themselves. However, the Internet has also created new challenges for the publishing world and I am greatly interested in seeing how those challenges are addressed, especially when these challenges are turned into opportunities for innovation and further development of brands.

Thank you for taking the time to read my application and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
