Application for Film Critic

Dear Hiring Manager,

As a seasoned film critic with 17 years of experience covering the latest releases for newspapers and platforms such as The Afternoon Herald, Sunnybank Times, Halliwell Post, and Action Online, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

Until recently, I was the Movie Critic for the Halliwell Post, where I was given the freedom to select which releases to review. My role involved watching the films twice to fully analyze acting, plot development, writing, directing, editing, and cinematography. I also assigned each movie a star rating on a scale of 1-5. Due to the popularity of my humorous pieces, I have often been invited to speak on podcasts, TV programs, radio shows, and entertainment review platforms across the US.

I am also an Assistant Professor of Media Studies at the University of Sunnybank, where I teach courses in film studies and entertainment journalism. In addition to my professional and academic experience, I hold a Bachelor of Journalism and am a member of the National Society of Film Critics.

Unfortunately, the Halliwell Post has closed its doors after 128 years. I now seek another stimulating opportunity to help audiences determine whether or not they should view the latest releases.

Please find attached my résumé for your consideration. My portfolio can be viewed at  Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Jeffrey Chang
