Motivating and structured school counselor ready for new challenges
My name is Karen Lee, and I have a background in the education industry, where I’ve primarily worked with students to develop and improve their skill set. Now I’m looking for new and exciting challenges.
When I read about the school counselor position at [University], it definitely piqued my interest.
I’m confident that I can meet, and even exceed, the expectations you have on your new school counselor.
There are several factors that I believe make me a good fit for this job:
First of all, I am confident that my previous work experience makes me well suited for supporting, guiding and mentoring students with you. My role as a school counselor has helped me grow in several key ways, and the experience I’ve gained in implementing programs to combat substance abuse has strongly contributed to my professional development. In addition to this, my earlier work as tutor at [Former Employer], has equipped me with the skills necessary to succeed in the role as school counselor.
My educational background is also a good fit for the demands placed on your new school counselor. In addition to everything I learned in my classes as a school counseling major, studying at The University of Georgia also gave me a large network and valuable experiences of a different kind.
Experience and knowledge are important aspects, but they tend to pale in comparison to having the right personal qualities. I am often described as empathetic, motivating and organized – traits that I believe are all important to succeeding as school counselor.
I hope that this brief presentation has given you small taste of who I am, and what I can bring to your team. I also hope that I will be given the opportunity to meet you for an interview, so that I may give you an even better idea of why I am the right person for you.
