Dear Ms Graham,
With the utmost enthusiasm I would like to put my name forward for your position of Admissions Officer, which I saw advertised today on the Dayjob.com website.
I believe that an Admissions Officers job is about more than just trying to put a University’s on the map. To me, its about giving new applicants an experience they will remember, rather than just matching students with courses.
As a seasoned professional in this field I will have no trouble whatsoever managing and maintaining your institutions central admissions systems, policies and procedures. I possess all of those skills that are critical for the success of your position, namely clearly articulating the application process and contributing towards the evolution of the recruitment service.
The nature of my career to date and my ability to deal with enquiries and applications for study at both undergraduate and postgraduate level has fully prepared me for your position. As a member of your company I will be at the forefront of critically evaluating both applicants and applications and recommending admission decisions as appropriate. Everything I do will be geared towards assisting prospective and new students in every way possible.
Aside from my technical competencies, I am an outgoing individual who is always involved in what is going on around me. Whilst I conduct myself in a positive and professional manner, I am also humble enough to understand and sympathise with the aims of students who want to enrol in higher education. I am willing to accept responsibility and be held accountable for my own actions.
As am ambitious person I now want to join a reputable and growing academic institution like yours, where I will get to work in a fast paced environment with good people.
I very much hope that you will invite me to an interview.
