Dear Ms Jackson,
Please accept this cover letter and attached CV from a prospective candidate who wishes to apply for your current Academic Advisor vacancy.
I come to you as a well qualified professional who is continually in the pursuit of excellence.
I am applying for this position because I relish the challenge and the privilege of being part of an academic team whose holistic, person centred approach supports a positive turning point in a young person’s life. Without wishing to sound boastful, I consider myself someone who is able to step into this role and provide seamlessly un-interrupted advice and teaching to my students.
During my career I have learnt how to facilitate learning by establishing close relationships with my students and by organizing learning resources in an effective manner. One of my strongest points is my ability to adapt my teaching methods so that they meet the varying needs and interests of students.
Currently I work in a school that has a very broad and varied curriculum. In my role I help students get off on the right foot in life, by using different methods of teaching to engage with them and to keep them focused and positive. I provide essential services for students such as academic advising, career development, student advocacy, and exam preparation.
Right now I am looking for a full time, long term, position with a School that believes that a happy workforce is a productive workforce.
In closing I would like to mention that I have attached my CV for your kind consideration, and invite you to contact me if you feel I have the potential that you are looking for in a candidate.
