Adjunct instructors are usually hired by universities where a need for teaching specialized or beginner level courses is eminent.
Teaching as an adjunct instructor is a good way to be introduced to a university’s atmosphere and look for further opportunities.
Here is an example of a cover letter that a candidate will write for an adjunct instructor resume in order to secure a position in this capacity.

Re: Adjunct Instructor Position
Dear Mr. Martin:
As a committed and knowledgeable individual, I am interested in applying for an Adjunct Instructor position at the Texas State University. This year, I will be acquiring my Masters degree from the Dallas University with major in English literature. Having visited the Texas State University recently, I appreciate the atmosphere of complete professionalism and high caliber and am confident that I will be able to contribute much to it.
During my post graduate studies, I had the opportunity to learn about designing, evaluating and implementing curriculum based on modern teaching methodologies. As evident on my resume, I have a documented expertise in content and curriculum development and a demonstrated ability to prepare lecture utilizing contemporary learning techniques. Moreover, I have a proven ability and keenness to respond to students in a timely manner and to deliver informative lectures.
Furthermore, I am highly skilled in making prudent administrative and procedural decisions and able to work effectively with a diverse population of students. My expertise to work closely with students in order to comprehend and manage classroom behavior is apparent and I take pride in my knowledge to prepare relevant reports.
I would appreciate an opportunity to speak with you about the possibility of my joining Texas State University, and will call you next week to ask for a convenient time to meet. If you would like to speak to me before that, you may call me anytime at (203) 333-3333.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
