Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Cherry Valley Social Services



Currently, I am a student at Youngstown State University pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. My expected graduation date is December 2008. I am interested in applying for a caseworker position at your agency.

Throughout my college years, I have been actively involved in a variety of social services type work. Besides completing an internship at a local mental health facility for drug dependent clients, I also have been employed as a youth monitor for three years at a residential center for at-risk teens. In addition to this experience, I served as a volunteer at Help Hotline during my junior year in college. All of these positions have helped me to develop my relationship building skills, as well as my organizational skills which are necessary to be an effective case worker.

I am eager to begin my professional career in the field of social services and would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss any openings you may have available. Enclosed is my resume listing the details of my experience and education.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you for your consideration.
