Subject: Application for position of Academic Dean
Dear Mr. Damato,
I am submitting this letter in interest of the position of Academic Dean as advertised. I believe I can offer the administrative and leadership skills necessary to benefit and further the aims and interests of Portland Community College.
To summarize the value I can bring to your management team, I have:
• In excess of 8 years of experience in challenging leadership roles of academic programs, as well as being the chief consultant to the Board of Directors, while acting as primary academic supervisor in a variety of locations.
• Experience in budget control of large organizations, as well as accurate reporting on an annual basis in liaison with the financial administrator.
• Experience of maintaining academic quality and the instructional level of course materials. I also have experience of and an understanding of the need for pre-prepared course assignment materials for professors and teachers.
• An adaptable and flexible nature attained through working in situations of a demanding, mission-critical nature where the overall success of the organization, as well as each individual, is the desired outcome.
I believe in building strong relationships with team members and fellow workers, whether equals or superiors. I have no doubt that my positive, team-centered attitude, coupled with my constant drive to produce solid results, will provide a constructive advantage to Portland Community College.
I feel sure that a meeting would be in both our interests and I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss how my experience and qualification can contribute to Portland Community College. Please contact me at (666)-342-9412, or email me at email@example.com.
