Professional Objective: Having been with agency for an extended period of time, I feel educated in several different areas of care. With that knowledge I would like to establish longevity and career stability within a clinic or specialty clinic, Urgent Care, or hospital. The knowledge and experience that I have gained working in various clinics with agency, I feel makes me an asset to a facility. I am a self-starter and very motivated to learn and not have to have continuous supervision.

1)Why would I be a good candidate for this position?

My level of knowledge and eagerness to learn, the ability to relate to patients as a care taker, making use of time with any additional tasks that I can, making myself available for information to others and receptive of information given to me.

2)Have I had any related job experience?

If so, please describe.

I have an associate’s degree in health care administration which has provided me the knowledge of coding, billing and the practice of business within a clinic, have my certification in Medical Assisting has provided me the knowledge of back office practice, in essence the dual knowledge has provided me the skills of completing the circle of care.

3)Why am I looking for a new job?

I have gained the knowledge in several areas, but have decided that I need to have a more structured schedule as I have a child at home that is growing quickly and I feel as though working any and all available schedules has hindered my being there. I’d like a home employer.

4)What was the worst job I have ever had and why?

I don’t know that I’ve had a worst job, I look at all experiences as a learning experience, and most challenging would be working in pediatrics. There is a lot of information to learn in a short period of time. I would say that position challenged my speed, accuracy and drive to learn the position.

5)How soon am I available to start working?


Thank you for taking the time to consider me as a candidate for your Medical Assistant. I pride myself in being a member of the National Technical Honor Society earning that from a GPA of 4.02 throughout medical assistant schooling. I am very motivated to learn, minimizing the need for a physician to slow his/her day by answering questions. I have educated myself as a patient and a caregiver of the little things that can be done to help assist a clinic in running smoothly without need for constant supervision. I love being in clinic working with patients and educating them, helping our clinic assist in patients getting well and helping themselves stay well. One of the most important things I learned in my education is the education is never complete, as the healthcare world continues to change and required knowledge is being tested, education is absolutely essential and continued education for all will be a necessity for any practice to run smoothly and proper patient care administered in a timely fashion. That being said, there is also the administration side of a practice that also is essential in a successful practice, meaning that there are steps that have to be taken from both clinical and administrative that will complete the circle of success for any practice. Having education on both sides of a practice, benefits me in all the decision making within my training in effort of making care as complete and cost efficient as possible, and could benefit your practice as well.

Thank you again for your time
