clip art

Every time you apply for a job, you have to include writing samples along with your resume and cover letter. But how many, and which ones?

The clips should be as closely related to the publication as possible – include a health article for a health magazine, a home decor story for a home decor magazine. Aim for a balance of long-form, service, well feature and upfront pieces. If the content isn't related to the magazine you're applying to, the format should be.
