Hiring Agent, Title
Dear Hiring Manager:
Your posting for an Arts Coordinator caught my attention as it seems an ideal match for my experience, talents, and interests. As a successful art educator with a record of accomplishment not only in teaching but also in developing and coordinating stimulating programs that promote art in the classroom and the community, I believe I am someone who will be an asset to your organization. With a wealth of knowledge, proven planning and coordination skills, unbounded energy, and a passion for achieving goals, I would like to explore the possibility of putting my skills to work for you.
As you can see from my enclosed resume, I have enjoyed a long, successful career in art education, having developed and taught a wide range of classes. Among my accomplishments, I take most pride in the influential role I had in expanding programs, improving curricula, and attracting students to art classes. As a testament to this, nearly 75% of students at Ridgemont High School, where I currently teach, have participated in elective art classes. I am also very proud of the annual art show, which I co-founded and then continued and expanded for more than 20 years. It is highly rewarding for me to see the wonderful talents of students professionally displayed and appreciated by attendees in these consistently well-received shows.
Through my school involvement, I have also had the opportunity to participate in other creative endeavors, such as set design, publication planning and layout, and special events coordination. Highly organized and detailoriented, I have established a record of success in bringing all of these projects to completion. Resourceful and quick-thinking, I am undaunted by challenge and resilient in the face of problems. With these traits and a proven track record behind me, I am confident I will be an asset to you as well.
I would be pleased to have the opportunity to discuss future employment with you and look forward to speaking with you soon. Please feel free to contact me at the address and phone number listed above. Thank you for your consideration.
