Dear Mr. Smith,

I am writing to apply for a position as an Employment Counsellor. My research indicates that you provide this level of service within your organization and that additional funding has allowed you to expand your facility. Should you have an opening for this position or any similar one, I am confident that you will find my qualifications valuable to your organization.

With a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work, I have obtained 5 years of experience in the youth employment related services. Three of those years involved workshop facilitation for homeless or at risk youth. As well, I have worked as a Case Manager ensuring proper intake, and that my fellow co-workers were practising assessment and follow-up methods. Knowledge of local labour market information to ensure appropriate career choices has been required in my career. I have also obtained excellent communication, organizational and interpersonal skills, which are essential for working in the social service field. Combined with my outlined computer skills and my ability to be creative, I feel I could offer your organization a patient and understanding counsellor.

I will be contacting you in one week to further discuss my qualifications and to inquire about any future openings within your organization. Thank you for taking the time to review my resume. I look forward to speaking with you.
