Human Resources Department
25th Lane Avenue, Old Road, Georgina
Dear Human Resources Representative:
It was with great interest that I read your advertisement for the position of Program Manager. I believe that my qualifications and experience match your requirements, and I am confident that I can add to your continued success and growth.
My 10 years of experience as a Director of Social Services, Care Plan Coordinator, Case Manager, and Social Worker have provided me the opportunity to build a strong track record of success in program leadership, service delivery, and community relations development. Thus, I could benefit your firm’s sales growth in several ways:
- I have met and exceeded objectives in providing the highest level of service for patients in facilities ranging from 120 to 176 beds, earning the respect and trust of residents and family members;
- I have demonstrated the ability to maintain 100% compliance with state and federal regulations, with personal commendations from state auditors and several “zero violations” scores on state audits;
- I keep up-to-date about changes and developments in all aspects of the human/social services industry, and my current plans include re-obtaining my LSW license;
- I am a results-driven program management and community relations professional who builds strong networks and develops win-win relationships with program participants, team members, and community leaders.
My positive attitude and dedication to both personal and professional growth are traits I held when I initially entered into the field of social services, and they remain an integral part of my work ethic today. You can be assured that I will demonstrate an uncompromising focus on service delivery, quality assurance, and the achievement of organizational objectives and goals as a member of your team.
My resume is enclosed to provide you with additional details concerning my background and qualifications. I will contact you within the week to follow up on this inquiry; perhaps we could arrange a meeting to discuss how I could contribute to your organization.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can answer any questions.
