Subject: Application for position of Academic Counselor
Dear Mrs. Adams,
I would like apply today for your exciting Academic Counselor position at Arkansas State University. I would make a great fit for this role for a number of reasons, to be discussed in the attached resume and also, in that of this cover letter.
To be brief, I have been employed for the last seven years at California Institute of Technology in the Academic Counseling Department for English Major Students; and have had a number of key responsibilities that has enriched my career to include: facilitating curriculum planning, discussion, and fielding questions about career development for hundreds of students per year. I also work to put these students in touch with all available resources both on campus and in the community towards their prospective career goals, taking each student not as a number, but as a hope for the future. I find my role in education very fulfilling, and wish to bring this dedication to it to your department at Arkansas State University. I have a Master’s Degree in English, and great communication and organizational skills to offer.
I know I would be of great value to your department and your students. For this reason, please see this cover letter and resume as the first step in hiring me.
