A Letter of Introduction allows you to introduce yourself and showcase some of your strengths to the reader or potential employer looking at your portfolio. This letter needs to be well-written for a full impact as to what skills you have to bring to a company.
To Whom this may concern: I am responding to your recent employment advertisement (Internal posting, April 2016) regarding the position of full-time Career Counsellor. I would welcome the opportunity of sharing my professional portfolio which details my experience and expertise in the area of advising students in course requirements for graduation and providing guidance for post-secondary education and future career planning.
I graduated with honors with a Diploma in Career/Employment Counselling Program at Red River College. I have currently been employed at a school as Program Coordinator and part-time Career Counsellor. Over the years I have acquired an excellent understanding and an extensive knowledge base regarding the requirements for post-secondary education, which allows me to communicate effectively with parents and students so they understand the implications of course selections. My organizational and leadership skills have been useful in planning field trips and informational events that are beneficial for the students.
I enjoy the opportunity to challenge others to think through processes in which they are involved and seeing them grow personally through decisions that they have made. As Career Counsellor, I would like the opportunity to implement programs that would be more effective as students consider their future careers and life-long planning.
I thank you for taking the time to consider my application and would be pleased to show you my portfolio to see the scope of varied events and opportunities I have had in my position as Guidance Facilitator, and the potential opportunities that could be implemented if offered the position of Career Counsellor.
