Dear Members of the Selection Committee,
I was excited to read of your opening for the job of Assistant Director of Health Education and
Wellness on your website. I understand that you are in search of an individual with strong
leadership skills and a passion for promoting health and wellness amongst the college population.
In reviewing my resume, you will find that I possess all the attributes of your ideal applicant. In
this regard, I believe I would strengthen Rice University’s Health Education and Wellness Office.
Through organizations such as the North Alabama Crisis Center and the Charlottesville Pregnancy
Center, I have acquired extensive experience in promoting and implementing health education
programs. These experiences, coupled with my educational background in health related issues,
have furthered my passion to help individuals develop healthy lifestyles and make educated
wellness decisions. My strong interpersonal skills and my ability to work with others, as
evidenced by my leadership positions detailed on my resume, would be a positive contribution to
your office. My experience advising student organizations in leadership positions I have held in
college have sharpened my public speaking skills, and I have gained survey research experience
through a number of courses, as noted on the attached list of relevant course work. In addition to
all of the qualifications listed in your on-line job description, I believe that I possess one
additional asset. As a new college graduate, I have an insider’s perspective and understanding of
the collegiate lifestyle and the health issues that go along with it. I can relate on a personal level to
this age group, which is a key component to the success of any educator.
I would love to have the opportunity to put my energy, drive, and determination to use at Rice
University. I look forward to the opportunity of meeting you to discuss my background in further
detail, since this letter highlights only a few of my experiences thus far. Thank you for taking the
time to review my resume. I will contact you next week to confirm the receipt of my credentials.
