Sample Cover Letter

October 30, 2006

Ms. Joan Goldberg
Director of Social Services
Children's Hospital at Dartmouth
One Medical Center Drive
Lebanon, NH 03756

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
