Dear Ms. Hawkins:

I am writing to apply for the position of Social Worker at Inova Health System, as advertised on Salve Regina University’s placement office. My master’s degree in social work and 8+ years’ hands-on experience makes me a good contender.

After completing my education I have taken full advantage of the opportunities provided by Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University to enrich my professional experience. I worked there for six years and practiced in full range of social services typically pertaining to substance abuse treatment programs. I achieved exceptional results in group and witnessed my patients recovered and walked out which brought me great delight. Moreover, I successfully conducted psychological interviews and evaluations and provided individual and group therapies for diagnosed patients.

From a very young age, I wanted to make myself useful to mankind and serve people. Thus, my profession is much more than a typical job i.e. it is my passion.

I want to take the aim of Inova Health System forward and eager to serve humanity more than ever. I am available for an interview at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
