Dear Mr. Lyons,
I am seeking a Recreation Director position and was informed of an opening at your company by one of your current employees. My resume has been attached to this letter for your convenience and I would ask that I be considered for this opening. You will find that I have the skills and enthusiasm that is needed for this position.
My education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Therapeutic Recreation and I have worked in this niche for close to eight years. It is important that those who are elderly and who are under your care be able to stay as active as their health permits. I understand these needs and can set up fun, therapeutic and healthy activities for them each and every day.
I take this work seriously and am totally dedicated to the team that I would be working with. I expect those who work with me to share this same enthusiasm and to always put the needs of the clients first. It would be wonderful to be able to sit down and discuss the needs of those who are in your care. This can allow me to better illustrate some of the activities that I would offer them. You can call me at any time at (555)-555-5555 to set up a time when we can meet.
