Luke Beld
Associate Professor

May 1st, 2013

Dear Mr. Johnson —

For many years I was a CEO of a Fortune 500 business. It taught me many lessons. It humbled me. And there were educational factors within this experience that I wish I would have known in my University-level education. That's why I'm seeking to follow along with a Professor to soon become a Professor myself.

That's why as an Associate Professor I have been able to previously:
Assist in the development of in-classroom material for collegiate-level student body.
Played a vital role in the development of the curriculum and provided guidance on modifications that should be made.
Worked closely with a previous Professor to ensure all administrative tasks were taken care of.
Played a guidance counselor role to students who required it.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible. If you'd like to see a portfolio of my prior work examples, I would be happy to supply that. In addition, if there are letters of recommendation that you'd like to see which I did not include, please request them and I can supply more than five.
