Dear Mr. Smith,
When I read your advertisement for a Patient Care Representative on Lucas County’s Web site, I thought that you had written the job description with me in mind. As you require, I am fluent in both English and Spanish and have excellent interpersonal skills. Additionally, I have experience in handling cash and performing inventory.
For the past 3 years, I have been caring for an elderly relative who is now deceased. During that time, I gained a considerable amount of experience scheduling appointments and communicating with medical staff and patients. I can be very empathetic and patient with sick individuals who may be confused or upset.
As soon as I complete my GED next month, I will be available to start work. As you will see on my attached resume, I am actively working to improve myself. For 10 hours each week, I have been practicing typing and am confident that I can meet your expectations in this area.
I am eager to make a difference at the Lucas County Health Department. I will contact your office at the end of the week to verify that you have received my letter and resume and to talk to you further about this opportunity. In the meantime, feel free to contact me at (111) 222-2222.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
