Sample cover letter for Full Time position at PATH


Program Assistant

Dear Hiring Committee,

I am interested in applying for the Program Assistant position for the Devices and Tools team at the PATH.

I have recently completed my Masters in Public Administration, with a focus on Non-Profit Management. My goal is to focus in global health and to provide services to those in need through research, pragmatic project implementation, and social and behavioral interventions. As I hope to gain more experience in the public health field, I feel this job will provide me with beneficial skills that I can take with me into my professional career in the future. I would be able to utilize my experience working for multiple nonprofit organizations as an operations manager, a policy researcher, and as a project manager to positively contribute to PATH’s team.

Through my professional experiences, I have continued to nurture my passion for global health equity, community health care, and development through service. I have been given the opportunity to grow my skill set in areas such as leadership, research, volunteer work and training, program development, project implementation and follow-up, evaluation, data input and analysis, and more. I believe these skills fit in with the type of support needed through this associate position. If given the opportunity, I look forward to bringing my skill set to the table and am excited to learn from colleagues as well.

PATH has an excellent reputation, and would be a wonderful place to expand my knowledge and professional experience. I believe my drive, initiative, organizational skills, and passion will make me an ideal candidate for the position.

Thank you for your consideration.
