Dear Mr. Aryan Singh
61 Crane Road
22nd June 2010
I am writing in reply to the classified ad seeking to fill the position of Graduate Student Advisor for the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies degree program.
I have been awarded the degree of Master of Arts from ABCD so I understand the need for academic advisement and program planning in a non-traditional higher education environment. I have also experienced, first-hand, the comforting effect of being able to contact an adviser who genuinely cares for the success of students.
I believe my educational background in non-traditional post-graduate education and my work related duties of counselling and advising students enrolled in learning programs qualifies me for consideration for the position of Graduate Student Advisor. I look forward to discussing how my skills can be of value to XXX as it prepares to move into the new millennium.
