The power of a well-written cover letter is undermined many times.
As a matter of fact, a support worker cover letter provides an additional dimension to an individual’s personality.
Through cover letters, employers notice your use of language and how you communicate. If you have any doubts about writing a good support worker cover letter, perhaps you can find a friend who can assist you in writing your cover letter.
A support worker, who has just started looking for a job, will no doubt be quite at the edge about preparing a cover letter to accompany his / her resume. It is not surprising.
Writing entry level resumes and cover letters is always difficult.
What you need to remember is that you have to make a good first impression, put a focus on the employer, and sell your benefits as opposed to your expectations.
Take a look at the following example of a cover letter for an entry-level support worker position:

Human Resource Manager

Dear Ms. Robert:
I am a recent social work graduate from the University of Kansas, anticipating a Support Worker position at Bay Cove Human Services.
I am a firm believer in the fact that family support and facilitation of interactions is what most clients need from support workers assigned to them. The rat race is not about how many successes we have – it is about how successful our clients feel.
Having volunteered my services for community work for three summers, I am well aware of a massive array of integrated community-based service options for youths and the elderly. Some aspects of community work that I have learned through my education and volunteer work include:
- crisis stabilization
- residential treatment
- health promotion
- psychological rehabilitation.
Ms. Robert, I am very interested in contributing to the mission of Bay Cove Human Services. I would greatly appreciate an opportunity to meet with you and discuss this further. I will contact you next Monday to schedule an appointment and can be reached at (000) 333-3333.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
