Subject: Application for position of College Professor
Dear Mrs. Kepner,
I am applying for advertised College Professor position recently and would like to introduce myself as a great choice for a candidate. My name is Candy Kepner, and I have included my resume with this cover letter for your consideration.
While working the last 12 years as a College Professor at Colorado State University, I have gained considerable knowledge and experience in creating and implementing curriculum in English Literature that is engaging and informative for my students. I have a number of specialty courses that I teach along with the introductory course to include: Faulkner and his Madness, British Literature, and American Contemporary Literature. My experience and knowledge of literature is very broad; however, and so I would be open to any suggestion you might have for your college needs; should I be hired. I also have a PhD in English Education from Columbia University, and the right combination of expertise, passion for my curriculum, and great communications skills with students and colleagues.
After you have reviewed this cover letter and the included resume, please contact me at the number above for a time that we could meet in person. Thank you for your time and consideration, and I await your reply.
