This letter is to express my interest in bringing my years of expertise in social services and case management to your company. I am certain that my skills and experience when linked with the vision of your company will serve to create dramatic and outstanding service to the community.
Throughout my career, I have worked closely with communities to improve their lives; and have been a part of ground breaking work in the area of disproportionality in health and human services to reduce disparity of services and casework practices affecting disadvantaged populations. It is my passion and desire to see communities and people thrive, and be empowered with the skills and resources needed to be successful.
You will benefit from my outstanding ability to motivate a team, supervise/monitor budgets, meet administration requirements; accurately document cases, handle crises, and speak publicly.
Enclosed is my resume to provide you with the details of my skills, however, a positive and personal interview would more accurately reveal my qualifications and the contribution I can make towards your organization’s future success.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions.
