Dear Ms. Harper,
I am very interested in becoming the new Resident Director at Company Name and was excited to see your advertisement for the position. Prior to moving to this area I had worked as a Resident Director for Ithaca College and have been seeking a similar role. In addition to six years of experience I also have a Master’s Degree in Communications which has come in handy in effective supervision of undergraduate resident assistants.
As a Resident Director I participated in overall planning and management of Ithaca’s Residence Hall facilities. I have terrific interpersonal skills which helped me effectively communicate policies and procedures to staff. I was able to resolve resident parent and all staff complaints regarding residence hall and room assignments. My years of experience have given me a great knowledge base to be an effective Resident Director. I have a strong understanding of good leadership. I provide excellent oversight to the administration of residence halls.
Company Name would be gaining a good leader by selecting me as the Resident Director. I have attached my resume in Word format and I look forward to meeting with you. Please respond via email as soon as possible to schedule my interview.
