Dear Mr. Matters:
I am graduating in May 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in Human Services with a minor in Sociology from Anyuniversity University, California. I am responding to your counseling position with your company because Camping Tents has established a reputation for helping hundreds of local families.
Growing up in a low-income home, I have learned to appreciate many things that so many people take for granted. I earned a partial scholarship for college and paid the rest of my tuition working at a local shelter.
I understand Camping Tents is dedicated to turning challenges into opportunities and change into growth. This growth has resulted in a reputation for high quality and strong community relationships. This is the type of organization where I am confident my skills and knowledge would be best suited.
Some of my skills and knowledge include:
• Ability to work effectively as part of a team
• Experience with under privileged children
• Interpersonal communication skills
• Strong public speaking skills
• Caring and empathetic
Although my resume provides a summary of my background and experiences, I would like to meet with you in person to discuss any available opportunities with Camping Tents. I can be reached at (555) 555-5555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
