Sample cover letter for Full Time position at JumpStart
Dear Operations Coordinator Hiring Manager:
When I read your job posting for the Operations Coordinator position, I was immediately drawn the the
similarities between your requirements and the experience I can bring to JumpStart. With 3 years of
project support experience, I’m confident that I’ve acquired the skills needed to excel in this position. Let
me further explain:
Over the course of my education and varied work experience, I’ve honed the ability to effectively manage
my time. Whether I’m entering data into databases, scheduling and taking notes at meetings, or arranging
transportation for approximately 500 students to attend an annual conference, I learned to efficiently
utilize every minute of the day in order to meet deadlines.
In addition to time management, I’m a fanatic for details. From copyediting test content to validating the
scores student responses received by updating assessment tools as necessary, I ensured that all aspects of
the test questions I reviewed complied to client specific guidelines and style.
Coming from a lowincome
background, I understand the impact a program like Jumpstart can be (I’m a
former HeadStart student). That’s why I’d love to lend my skills and experience in education to support
your continued growth to help every child succeed.
I’d appreciate the opportunity to discuss with you in more detail about this position. Thank you for your
consideration; I look forward to hearing from you.
