University of Leads
Leeds LS2 9JT
I am writing in to apply for the position of Admissions Counselor in Birmingham University, as advertised on monster.com. I strongly believe that my work experience as a counselor at University of Leeds makes me an ideal candidate for this position.
This is my 10th year at Leeds, and my track record has been outstanding (references attached). My strong communication skills and the ability to build a rapport with students have been instrumental in my success over the years.
I have been engaging with and recruiting around 7,500 candidates per year for Leeds, and my efforts have resulted in an increase of over 10% for student retention in our university.
Now I feel like taking up a bigger challenge at Birmingham and delivering even better results.
Kindly consider my resume (attached with this letter) and references at your convenience and let me know if you need any further information.
Hoping to receive a positive response from you and speak in person.
