Dear Ms. Goldberg:
I am writing to apply for the Clinical Social Worker position posted on Wheelock Works. When I return to New Hampshire in May, I would like to become a team member at the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth. I have always aspired to work with Chad A. Saurus.
My experience includes work with children and adolescents in a variety of settings, including hospitals, community centers, as well as camp and school settings. Due to my interest in medical social work, I had the opportunity to conduct my field placement in the Oncology Department at Massachusetts General Hospital. While there, I became familiar with case management strategies, including identifying community resources and discharge planning. This knowledge combined with the skills I have acquired through my coursework and various field experiences, including individual counseling techniques and advocacy strategies, will enable me to effectively support clients in a health care setting.
I look forward to meeting with you and discussing my qualifications and will call you next week to inquire whether you need additional information. I may be reached at 617-879-2000. Thank you for your consideration.
Mary Beth Johnson
