Sample cover letter for Full Time position at mckinsey



Dear Dr. Smith:

While researching school districts in the Kansas City area, I learned some openings may occur for the next school year in your district. I have enclosed a résumé for your review and wish to be considered for a Middle School Math or Elementary position. I will graduate from the University of Missouri this May with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education and certification in both areas.

I am presently student teaching at Fairlane Elementary in Ms. Roger's sixth grade classroom. Prior to this semester, I was a site coordinator for Adventure Club, abefore- and after-school child care program in Columbia Public Schools. My summers between semesters have been spent working at various camps and summer school programs. Additional experience has been gained through tutoring, field experiences, and volunteer work.

The Kansas City area is my home and I can think of no better place to begin my career. I have completed an application on both on the REAP system and through SuccessLink. If additional application materials are needed, I would very much appreciate your sending them to me at the above address.

I would like to meet with you in person for an interview and discuss possible employment opportunities. I am available at your convenience and look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your assistance.
