Cover Letter: Grow Ontario Together

My name is Eli Ridder: a dedicated writer, researcher and experienced multimedia producer. I have the experience to be proficient and the passion to stay dedicated. I am the candidate you are looking for in this position.

The writer settings you are looking for, I have experience in, along with corporate research and extremely recent NGO experience as a communications and marketing intern.

I have a can-do attitude–when the college faculty strike occurred last fall, my university was affected, however, none of the mainstream media or student media was covering the unique angle of Guelph-Humber.

I took the initiative to establish The Guelph-Humber Post (now The Avro Post) to cover the news and ask the important questions for the thousands of students confused and without information.

Now, the Post is a permanent and growing university publication covering interesting stories and posting investigative reporting.

My joke….

Why are pirates so eco-friendly? They always follow the three arrrrrrrs.

In regards to writing experience, I have written over 1,500 articles in the forms of reports, editorials, analysis and more. Some stories I would like to highlight for my application to Grow Ontario Together are the following:

Report: Toronto van attack vigil story
Corporate: Clean Water in Kenya – NGO
