Dear Mr. Myers,
I am writing in response to New Parkland Regional Community College’s advertisement for the college teaching position available in the Psychology Department. I have a Master’s Degree in Psychology and have been in private practice as a licensed professional counselor for several years. I could bring some real world experience to the college teaching role.
I have a strong understanding of psychological theory and statistics and would be able to convey the information effectively to students. College teaching involves a different skill set than does K-12 education and I would be able to deliver. Because of my extensive knowledge of the psychology field, I am well-equipped to develop course syallabuses, select textbooks and design tests and lectures over the subject matter.
I believe my education and real-world practice experience makes me uniquely qualified for the college teaching position in the Psychology Department. Although I enjoy practicing psychology, I love to inspire others through teaching. I believe I could be very effective.
I believe you’ll find me a good choice for the college teaching position at New Parkland Regional Community College. I have attached my resume and a list of references. Please call me as soon as possible to schedule an interview.
A well-crafted cover letter can be a powerful job search tool.

Dear Mr. Sidney Harris:
I am writing to express my interest in the position of Adjunct Professor for the SHRP Department of Interdisciplinary Studies. I currently hold a PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies from Union Institute and University, and have over 15 years of experience as a professor and administrator in health policy development. I completed an interdisciplinary doctoral dissertation utilizing elements of ethnomusicology, public policy, thanatology, and liturgical practice to explore HIV policy.
I offer a unique combination of undergraduate and graduate level teaching in both traditional and online settings, as well as Health Administration and Consulting background in the healthcare profession. I believe this combination of professional and academic experience ensures I am an excellent fit for this position.
Currently, I serve as Program Director of Management and Assistant Professor of Management for the Accelerated Studies for Adults Programs for Keuka College. I have incorporated elements of interdisciplinary research in the Masters of Management program at Kekuka College, where I have been instrumental in revising the curriculum. I coordinate administration for the management degree programs, develop online instruction and certificate programs, as well as design and facilitate online courses in Management. In addition, I direct 100+ adjunct and 6 full time faculty serving 350 students in 11 sites across central New York State. My work as online faculty extends to assisting students as Doctoral Dissertation Mentor and Committee Chair for the MBA Healthcare Administration program at Capella University. I have previously served as Executive Director and Program Administrator for Westchester County AIDS Council.
I have a passion for initiating, revamping, and redesigning programs in health sciences, health care management, health leadership, and health advocacy. I am able to leverage my previous experience as Executive Director of Westchester County AIDS Council to advise students on real world scenarios and situations. I have a proven background designing and implementing a health sciences research agenda and creating successful curriculum programs for online students.
I would enjoy discussing the Adjunct Professor position with you in the weeks to come. In the meantime, I am enclosing my Curriculum Vitae; letters of recommendation and references will arrive under separate cover. If you require any additional materials or information, I would be happy to supply it. Thank you for your consideration.
