My name is Alex Dvorak. I graduated from the University of St. Thomas in 2010 with a Bachelors degree in Entrepreneurship and Communications. While at St. Thomas, I was awarded an annual Academic Scholarship, participated in the University of St. Thomas Research Communication Conference, and worked as a radio DJ at the campus radio station (KUST). In addition to attending St. Thomas full-time, I have also been the owner/operator of a lawn care company for the last 10 years, and as a result, have been exposed to all the details that factor into running a successful small business.
Since then however, my interests have begun to shift. In the time to come I look to attend Graduate school in order to earn my Masters in Broadcast Journalism emphasizing in Radio, after which, I intend to enter into the realm of radio news.
This is the reason for my interest in your position available as a News Producer. I do not have the years of writing experience, but I do believe I have a strong writing voice, the ability to research/digest/summarize news articles, and I have a strong interest in news, particularly sports. With online news publications, I imagine it can be difficult to keep the attention of your readers due to how quickly they change webpages. I recognize that, and in turn, will look to write news with the necessary creativity to keep the attention of an ever impatient audience.
I hope you look over a copy of my resume and some writing samples I have prepared and consider me for this position.
