Subiaco Dog Reporter Application


One day I thought that, as I knew so much about what was happening in Subiaco, I should apply for a job as a reporter to the Subiaco Post Community Newspaper. You can read my application letter and CV in a moment. I will even show you a transcript of my interview with the editor of the Post in my next blog.

You may think my confidence a little overdone but I am sure they will want to speak to me before the Western Australian Newspaper snaps me up!

Dear Sir,

I am very impressed with the standard of articles in your newspaper and the excellent stories you publish. You must have some quality staff in your employ.

Reading your paper has inspired me to write to alert you to the amazing skills I have in telling of my adventures around Subiaco. I am a prolific reader and blogger. If you follow me on my morning walk you will see that I might read up to twenty WeeMails from my mates in just one kilometre. I am very polite and always leave an instant WeePly.

I have enclosed my CV and anticipate you will be very keen to interview me soon.

Special Skills I am fairly famous for my tricks –  I can roll over, stop, come, go through and over, choose which hand a treat is in, find, hop, stay, shake hands, wave goodbye, say hello, roll over for a tummy rub, yell at mum to take me for a walk, beg for more food, dance and spin, throw a tantrum just like a two year old, and say yes and no.
