Hiring Director

Big Town, USA 99999

Dear Ms. Highsmith:

Recently I relocated to Big Town and am interested in finding employment in the field of education where I got my start when I graduated from college ten years ago. Since then I have worked in the district office of Any Town as an education counselor, consulting with students and family members that need help regarding special needs.

I was happy to see your listing for such a person when I looked on JobSearchJimmy.com today for new employment in the field of education. Counseling is my specialty. I love working with families to resolve the challenges they face when deciding the best course of action for their children—especially those with learning disabilities or other conditions. Everyone deserves a good education and I want to be a voice for that goal with the students I work with.

As you will see from my attached resume, I have a M.A. in school psychology and a B.A. in elementary education. May we meet in person so we can talk further about how I can fulfill what you are looking for in the individual you hire?

I'm available at 777-777-7777 each weekday from 3:00 pm through 7:00 pm. I appreciate your reading my cover letter and resume and anticipate the opportunity to meet you.

Sincerely,

Jane Job Seeker

A timely reminder: When writing your cover letter for work in education, mention your resume and point the hiring manager to that attachment so he or she will see the details that qualify you specifically for the job you wish to land. It's difficult to include everything in a cover letter so the resume of previous employment and any rewards you received can be the document that helps to seal the deal in your favor.
