Ms. Helena Chang
My name is Charles Bloomberg and I was pleased to learn about the available Guidance Counsellor position at [SCHOOL NAME] on [WEBSITE]. In addition to my Bachelor of Psychology and Master of Professional Counselling, I have six years of experience working as a school counsellor. I am dedicated to cultivating supportive, stimulating, and inclusive environments that allow high school students to reach their fullest potential. Given the opportunity, I will provide exemplary guidance and ensure no student is left behind at [SCHOOL NAME].
Throughout my previous school counsellor positions, I provided individual and group counselling sessions to students ages 14-18 regarding career development, academic achievement, social behavior, and mental and physical health. I gained experience working with students with disabilities, as well as providing crisis counselling to students who have recently experienced trauma. I successfully implemented programs to increase graduation rates as well as college application rates. I pride myself on my ability to strengthen relationships and decrease conflicts between peers through the introduction of anti-bullying, peer mentoring, and conflict resolution initiatives. Some notable contributions from my previous school counsellor position include:
• Increased graduation rates by 10% through the introduction of an early intervention program for students identified as at risk of failure or dropping out
• Conducted specialized counselling sessions for students with disabilities and behavioral issues
• Provided immediate crisis counselling and ongoing support for 200+ students following a school tragedy
• Increased college application rates by 15% after introducing a training program for senior students on how to complete scholarship and general acceptance applications
Thank you for your time and for considering my candidacy for the position. I look forward to learning more about how I can be an advocate for youth at [SCHOOL NAME] in the near future.
