Dear Mr. Whittaker,

I am writing to apply for the position of Academic Dean at Robertson Island University. I have a master’s degree in student administration, and I have ten years’experience working at a higher education institution. I believe these qualities align well with what you require for this role.

I am highly skilled at administration work and have overseen the admin work for professors, advisors and administrative staff. I chair staff meeting and handle budgetary matters. With a keen eye for detail, strong leadership skills and effective time management skills, I believe I would be a suitable candidate for this position.

My experience and background have given me a broad understanding of the workings of an institution of higher education, as well as how to handle delicate or stressful situations with ease. I get along well with people and can work effectively as part of a team.

I have accomplished the following achievements that will be to the benefit of my next position:

Implemented new programs, procedures, and processes to make administration more efficient

Developed marketing or promoting academic programs on the campus.

Served as advisor to departments and students when needed

I am confident that you will find my resume, credentials, and references to your standard. I look forward to bringing my skill set and experience to the efficient running of the university. I look forward to hearing from you, and thank you for your consideration.
