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.

Sincerely,

Susan Howard
