Dear Mr. Abraham:
I am pleased to submit my application for the position of Personal Support Worker which was advertised in uscanadajob.com. Per your requirements, I have a vast background as a Personal Support Worker having many pleased clients of all ages. I possess excellent patient skills, attention to detail and organizational skills in a variety of developmentally disabled, home health and long-term care environments.
I have successfully completed the Personal Support Worker Certificate program through XYZ College and obtained certificates in First-Aid and CPR obtained from ABC Center. While working as a personal support worker at different home health facilities and long-term care environments, I have consistently demonstrated my aptitude to work without help. Moreover, I am able to become a most effective member of a health care team; working with fellow personal support worker’s, nurses and physicians, all at the same time as providing the highest possible level of patient care.
During my prior experience as a personal support worker, I have monitored and recorded behavioral changes to help the health care team in determining suitable treatment and medication. In addition, I have created programs for individual and group behavior. I have worked in a reporting environment and am familiar with paper and computer record keeping.
As experienced and dedicated Personal Support Worker, I’d welcome the chance to meet with you to discuss how my experience, credentials and expertise would be beneficial for your organization. You may contact me at 609) 9333-9999 during weekend so as to plan a meeting time that will best suit your timetable. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
