Dear Ms. Robey,
I came across your job posting in the local newspaper yesterday looking for a school counselor with your esteemed organization. I do know that you are looking for someone who has vast experience in working with children, and I can gladly say that I may be the right person to fit the bill in numerous ways.
I have more than seven years of experience of working in this field and have been mainly working with children in high school. However,
I have not limited my expertise to this lot and I can easily work with children of any group in a school. I started my career in college where I used to volunteer for an orphanage, and would help them with various problems that they face in life. This is time when I decided that I would like to be a school counselor.
Having started my career at an early age, I am sure that my expertise does lie in helping students deal with stress, social pressure, and with frustrated situations. I have also achieved success in helping students gain their self-esteem by reviewing their past success, so that they can easily garner the strength of their future aspirations. I strongly believe that age has nothing to do in helping students; you just need to strike the right balance so that students open up to you.
I can guarantee you that I am a highly dedicated professional who knows the sensitivity of this position well. If you think that I am perfect for this position then do call me on the number mentioned above in the letter, so that we can decide a time and date to meet up for an interview, at your convenience.
Thank you for considering my letter and giving me your time.
You can write your application letter in the similar manner. Good luck!
