Dean, The New School for Social Research

Manager, Student Services

Dean Milberg and Search Committee Members:

This letter is to express my special interest in discussing the Manager, Student Services position posted on the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium website. The opportunity presented in this listing is extremely appealing, and I believe that my experience and education make me a competitive candidate worthy of consideration.

In my role as Associate Director with NYU’s Division of Programs in Business, I work daily in a variety of roles, where I am not just the administrator but also the gatekeeper, student services professional, faculty and instructional support whiz, and marketing and program development guru. I’m not only used to wearing many hats, I sincerely enjoy it; I thrive in an environment where no two work days are exactly the same. It is precisely my ability to establish and maintain strong relationships with faculty and students, along with my capacity to lead day-to-day operations, that I am seeking this position.

In my previous role as an administrator with SUNY Empire State College, I received an ‘Excellence in Student Service’ recognition due to my ability to coordinate complex logistics in order to keep students engaged and making successful academic progress even when issues arose that were beyond the control of the institution. Again, this involved not only managing operations but communicating directly with customers. As a result, I believe my combined ability to successfully manage operations while also effectively interface with students makes me a prime candidate for this role.

The key strengths that I possess for success in this position include, but are not limited to, the following:

I demonstrate courage and optimism in the face of ambiguous challenges, for which there are no obvious answers—I am fleet-footed when work pivots, quickly making sense of the change so that I can point the team in the right direction.

I am curious and passionate about project management—the rhythms and dynamics that make it work, across a wide range of operations.

I bring a fusion of systems thinking and creativity in my ability to generate original ideas, solve complex problems, and understand all the forces required to effect change.

I love collaborating in teams of diverse talents and skills—and I help each person show up as the best versions of themselves.

You will find me to be energetic, confident, and personable, the type of person on whom your faculty and students will come to rely. I also have a wide breadth of experience of the type that gives you the versatility for me to serve across the school in a number of contexts with confidence that the level of excellence you expect will be met. Please see my resume for additional information on my experience.

I hope that you’ll find my experience and interests intriguing enough to warrant a meeting, as I am confident that I could provide value to you and the school as a member of your team. I am very excited about this opportunity to work for The New School. I connect with your mission to create a progressive approach to continuing education. The core values of The New School, innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship are reflected in my own professional, and personal values, and I believe this alignment strongly supports my candidacy for this role.

I can be reached anytime via my cell phone, 999.999.9999. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you about this opportunity.
