I am applying for a job with my local newspaper who is offering the spot for students to report on issues at our school. i would love to get the job, but it says "if you are interested, email a cover letter and writing sample..." what is a cover letter? is that like a resume? i am really confused as what to do. thank you so much!!10 months ago - 3 answers
A cover letter in this case would be an addition to your resume. Like Dear whoever, I hope you give serious consideration to my resume. I would love to work with your company and I think I would be good at it because etc. etc.
You're asking for a job involving writing so they want to see how good you are at it. What you say won't count as much as how well you say it.

Basically just extra information about yourself that you would like to provide to the newspaper.
