Dear Ms Graham,
As an experienced Academic Counselor who has a track record of helping students to reach their goals and objectives, I feel I would be a perfect candidate for your recently advertised vacancy.
I not only have a genuine interest in the work I do, but also in the people I work with. I strive for excellence in everything, and want to be amongst the best in my field. I possess a relentless drive to inform students about alternatives, limitations and the possible consequences of any academic decisions they make.
I’ve spent the last two years working for …………………………., in a role similar to the one you are advertising. My work is varied and requires me to maintain up-to-date knowledge of the College’s programs and requirements. I am responsible for developing and interpreting Academic Planning Guides, as well as maintaining administrative and program information files.
Aside from my counselling competencies, I am a strategic thinker who has rock solid analytical skills and superb interpersonal capabilities that allow me to communicate precisely and clearly with others.
On a personal level I pursue all my activities with focus and drive, and am someone who can be counted on to complete goals. I am always immaculately presented and have an excellent understanding of time keeping and working to deadlines. In addition to this I have the ability to cope under pressure and can easily manage large call volumes at peak times.
Right now I am looking for a fantastic chance to join a large and successful academic team, within an industry leading and reputable School, College or University. I would like to find out more about the position you are looking to fill, and would be grateful if you were to invite me to an interview.
