Dear Hiring Professional:

Please consider this letter of introduction as an expression of my interest in exploring and identifying career opportunities in Human Services with your organization. The enclosed résumé highlights my experience and qualifications.

As my résumé reflects, I possess solid internship experience in a wide variety of social service capacities providing top-notch service in complex, client-focused environments. While I do not have any professional working experience in this industry, I possess strong core academic and inter-based competencies in crisis intervention, building client rapport, intake interviews/client assessment, evaluation techniques, community education, and community referrals. This, along with my recent graduation from the University of Phoenix with a Bachelor of Science in Human Services will allow me to make significant bottom-line contributions within your organization.

My ability to empathize and approach clients with a gentle, open, and nonjudgmental attitude allows me to openly learn new methods and explore new ideas to enhance my service abilities. I have well-developed interpersonal skills, excellent communications abilities, active listening skills, strong problem resolution, and organizational abilities.

Confident that the strength of my education and experience, combined with my dedication, energy, commitment, and attitude, will add measurable value to your organization, I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to discuss your needs and my potential to contribute as a team member. Thank you for your attention, consideration, and forthcoming response.
