Subject: Application for position of Academic Counsellor

Dear Ms. Nelligan,

I am applying for the position of Academic Counselor, which was advertised a short while ago. I feel I am the right person for this post as my skills are ideally suited to benefit the general aims of Grand Canyon University.

As Academic Counselor to Grand Canyon University I would bring:

• In excess of 7 years experience in challenging counsellor roles spent advising enrolled and prospective undergraduate students while managing an assortment of projects and programs in a variety of locations.

• Team and individual counseling skills, which include the evaluation of performance and achievement. I exercise a personal and supportive approach to encourage enhanced performance levels.

• An adaptable and flexible nature attained through working in situations of a demanding, mission-critical nature where the overall success of students is the desired outcome.

Strong relationships with students are vitally important, in my opinion, and I am more than capable of achieving this in every case. I believe in a team spirit where everyone is part of an overall team that is stronger than the sum of its constituent parts. This attitude, I feel, will be constructive and positive, and definitely a benefit to Grand Canyon University.

We should therefore meet as soon as possible at which time I will be better able to demonstrate my experience and qualifications, and how they can best make a difference to Grand Canyon University. You may call me at home at (888)-832-2815, or on my cell phone, (888)-832-2815, or you can send an email to me at
