Dear Ms. Ruth Carter,
I am applying for the DCF social worker position that is posted for your agency, Kennedy Donovan Center.
I have a bachelor’s degree in social work and have worked with families for the majority of my career. I have a real love for helping families to get on track and when an issue comes up such as substance abuse, I can refer the person directly to the appropriate agency. It is my goal to attempt to keep families together when possible but I also understand that in some cases this may not always be possible.
I have strong organizational skills and can handle a large case load if it is required of me. I am also a great communicator and can diffuse any situation if it ever starts to become volatile. My interpersonal skills are also very good and I can work on my own or with a team.
I also understand that there may be travel required for this position and I have a solid vehicle and do not mind this aspect of the job. I also know that there may be times when I am required to work either nights or weekends and I am available for this.
I am very good at all Microsoft Office software as well as working directly from Outlook. I can write up legible reports and would always have them in on time.
Please feel free to contact me at any time to discuss your social worker needs by calling (555)-555-5555. I look forward to hearing from you.
