Dear Mrs. Hidalgo,
I write to introduce myself in accordance with your open Academic Advisor position, as advertised on the university website. After reviewing your positionís requirements, I know I am a great match for your needs in filling this role. Please accept my enclosed resume today for this Academic Advisor position.
Over the past six years that I have been employed as an Academic Advisor at Argosy University in Oxford, AL, I have had the opportunity to help hundreds of students every year at the undergraduate level determine in which direction they want to move career wise, what courses would interest them most, and what other steps should be taken to meet their academic goals in the short and long term. This has given me a comprehensive knowledge of what it takes to really be the resource that students need in this highly transitional and significant time in their lives. It takes knowledge of the specific discipline, an ability to keep apprised of current and existing courses, and one on one attention to every student. I have all of these capabilities, as well as undying patience, organizational skills, and interpersonal humanity. Moreover, I also bring to this position a PhD in English Teaching, and training in Academic Advising.
I ask that you please find my enclosed resume and entertain it further for this esteemed Academic Advisor position at University of Texas at Arlington. I am confident that my skill set, academic advising and teaching background, as well as my education would make me an excellent choice for this position. With this, I ask that you please contact me at (123) 499-5017 to arrange a time to speak further and possibly set up a meeting in person. Until this time, I thank you warmly for your time and consideration, and I look forward to your call.
