To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing to express my great interest in applying for the Academic Advisor position at Cooper College. When I saw the job posting, I knew I would be the perfect fit based on our shared dedication to helping even the most at-risk students reach their academic goals. I believe my passion for guiding young people and my years of experience in academia would make me an asset to your program.

In my role as Academic Advisor at Northern University for the past eight years, I have helped a class of 5,000 undergraduate students plan their courses and prepare for their careers. During this time, my colleagues and I established a program to provide academic as well as social support to struggling students. Graduation rates rose 6% in the four years since we launched this program. Prior to this, I worked in the admissions office at one of the country's top universities, where I gained a keen understanding of university policies and procedures such as enrollment, credit transfer and financial aid. My experience has provided me with a strong set of communication, interpersonal and analytical skills. I am an encouraging and patient resource for students trying to find their way through college or struggling to reach their academic goals. I have great empathy for students of all backgrounds and education levels and have met one-on-one with thousands of inspiring young people over the years. I also have exceptional yet approachable communication skills, as evidenced by the regular presentations I develop and give on course and major selection, test-taking, school-life balance, interviewing for jobs, choosing career paths and more. I believe one of my greatest assets is my problem-solving ability. I enjoy working with students, particularly those who are struggling with the transition to college, to identify the right solutions for each individual situation. From credit transfers to changing majors to setting schedules, I pride myself on helping students find ways to best navigate college life. Because I monitor and maintain records on hundreds of students' progress at any given time, I also have meticulous organizational and multitasking skills.

Thank you for taking the time to consider my application for the Academic Advisor position. I am excited about the opportunity to work with a program that places such emphasis on its students' success. I look forward to hearing from you and discussing how I can use my skills and enthusiasm to help support Cooper College's student body.
