Dear Mr. Lynch,
I am interested in applying for the position of Admissions Counselor at the University of
Massachusetts Dartmouth listed on the university’s employment opportunities website. I believe
that my educational background, skills, and work experience have prepared me well for the
duties and responsibilities of the position.
Obtaining a bachelor’s degree in marketing provided me with knowledge in the areas of
consumer behavior, strategic marketing, and promotional strategies. This education will be an
asset in successfully representing the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth as an Admissions
Counselor. While working as an admissions assistant at Shepherd University, I found my passion
for recruitment and communication with prospective students and their families. In this position,
I became very effective in developing working relationships with my clients, while perfecting
marketing and public relations methods for recruiting. My professional goal is to further expand
on these skills in the role of Admissions Counselor at the University of Massachusetts
In addition to my recruiting experience, I gained a lot of professional advancement through my
marketing internship with Breakthrough Events Inc. I mastered efficient teamwork, learned
successful event planning techniques, and effectively employed variety of marketing strategies.
Both of my employment experiences required frequent utilization of social media for marketing
and public relations purposes. The enclosed resume further outlines my skills, experiences, and
qualifications for the position of Admissions Counselor.
I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to further discuss my qualifications for the
position. I will contact you the week of June 29 to follow up on the status of the search. Please
contact me at 304-876-4356 or if you have any questions or would like
to schedule an interview. Thank you for your time and consideration.
