As a coach, I have experience, as a head four-year collegiate coach, the remainder being in all levels: Junior College, NAIA, NCAA Division I, II and III.
I am familiar with and completely understand the opponents/talent level needed to compete nationally.
There are plenty of opportunities to land an Athletic Director position but it won’t just be handed to you. The last ten years of my life has been devoted to planning organising scheduling and executing sporting activities of all types in a variety of venues.
Crafting an Athletic Director cover letter that catches the attention of hiring managers is paramount to getting the job and Live Career is here to help you stand out from the competition. Hardisson I would like the opportunity to apply for your athletic director position. My tenure as athletic director has given me a great background in techniques for team building encouraging cooperation in accomplishing goals and overcoming obstacles.
As an Athletic Director, I saw a LOT of different cover letter formats.
A variety of different lengths (keep yours to under a page), different fonts, different colors, on different types of papers, etc.doesn’t help; its the fact that they called upon you to help them transition from Division XYZ to D2, that’s it.) Prior to that, I was the Head Men’s Basketball Coach at XYZ College, a NAIA member.This was a position I held for three years and left that position as the schools’ all-time leader in winning percentage at .659.You have to leave a little mystery in your cover letter, so they do some more reading on your resume.The year doesn’t help this story, the location of their school doesn’t help this story, the fact they are the first forein institution, etc.We competed many times against teams that represented the NCAA Division I, Division II and III as well as NAIA Division I members, which we often defeated and/or competitively matched up.We always enjoyed our opportunity to compete against the larger schools as it prepared us for The DEF Conference, post season and the NAIA national tournament.One reason he called upon me was to help them bridge the gap between Division XYZ and NCAA Div 2 level, where they now play.(This intrigues me; it makes me want to ask that coach who asked you to consult about you, it makes me wonder why he would call upon you, it makes me think more about you.We just finished with a record of xx-xx, the first time in school history having back to back 20 plus win seasons.(Let me tell you why I will have success at XYZ; one of many examples is that as the Associate Head Coach at XYZ University, I helped to lead our team to their first back to back 20 win seasons in school history!) Now read what you wrote, and what I wrote – which one is more intriguing?
