I am a dedicated and compassionate individual who strives to provide the best care I possibly can to patients.
I’m excited by the prospect of working for a highly recognized long-term care facility like Crane & Jenkins, and I believe that my patient care skills make me a natural fit for this position.
These numbers are there to tell you that there is a note below. Smith (*1), I am attaching this letter to my resume as a means to introduce myself and also express my great enthusiasm and interest in this position(*2).
Each note will explain that particular part and give you recommendations on how you can either improve or personalize that section. With my five years of experience as a Certified Nursing Assistant, I have been able to build up a skill set that, I am confident, will serve me admirably at First Healthcare. You want to show that you have read the position’s description and have written a unique cover letter. Although this is written with experience, if you don’t have experience, then write something here about a quality or an experience that you think will make you stand out.
Based on the first paragraph, they usually make their decision of whether or not they will finish reading the cover letter or just move on. Although this one has been written by a Certified Nursing Assistant who is new to the field, it can still be useful to the more experienced.
As with many of the sample CNA cover letters in John’s book, you will find bolded numbers next to a particular area.
I feel that my patient-driven approach, CNA skills and desire to learn new roles will also make me an asset to Crane & Jenkins.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
Remember that the first paragraph is the most important.
According to Monster.com, most interviewers only read the first paragraph and the last.
