Grabbing the attention of your prospective employer is as easy as ABC if you write a strong and compelling cover letter for adjunct faculty resume. Below are two tips to make a highly effective cover letter for adjunct faculty positions.

Extra effort yields results: Flattering the company by showing you have done research on them works. Look up the company on the internet and find out about their culture, norms and expectation of the role at hand. Also find out the name of the concerned person and use it in your cover letter’s salutation.

Specific and relevant accomplishments only: Like resume, you have limited space while writing a cover letter. Determine your most relevant professional accomplishments of the past and communicate your role and the value you brought to the firm very specifically, with the aid of statistics or numbers where possible.
