It’s a common trend to make a single cover letter and use it repeatedly, but the majority of employers recognize a reused cover letter. Therefore, it is very important to write a new cover letter for each employer per job requirements.
Having established that the main purpose of a Occupational Therapy Assistant cover letter is to get an interview, let us move on to the second reason i.e. communication. A cover letter is used to communicate the employer the intangibles of a candidate such as career gaps or some skills that cannot be made evident in a resume.

Dear Ms. Martin:
I’m writing to convey a strong interest in the occupational therapist position with Premier Therapy, as advertised in the Daily Dawn. I am confident that my expertise in carrying out therapeutic services would help me achieving the targets of Premier Therapy. I’m particularly interested to work with Premier Therapy because it has developed a perfect reputation by providing quality of service for numerous years.
I have been working as an Occupational Therapy Assistant with Green Physio Care for one year, therefore, well versed with the duties that this work necessitates. For instance, I am highly skilled in:
✔ Helping patients perform therapeutic activities
✔ Working with brood who have development disabilities
✔ Teaching patients how to use particular equipment
✔ Recording patients’ development and report to occupational therapists
✔ Performing routine administrative and clerical tasks
My practice to this work makes me able to treat patients through activities specially designed to restore functions while keeping in mind the necessity to alter treatment when deemed appropriate and in the patient’s best interest.
My resume is enclosed for your review. I am certain that my training and modern approach towards work will be an asset for Premier Therapy. I look forward to meet with you soon in order to discuss the position of an Occupational Therapy Assistant in detail. I will call your office next week to set a date of meeting. Please feel free to call me on my cell at 000-777-8888 if you would like to speak to me in the mean time.
