Thank you for taking time to consider my resume for employment with your agency. For the past 16 years I have worked hard advocating for the disadvantaged, poor, and others in need. I have established a reputation of caring, compassionate and ethical practice. Having come out of hardship and challenging circumstances myself I feel that I am able to understand their situations and relate to their issues. This experience has made me sympathetic to the issues facing disadvantaged populations and continues to buoy my desire to assist and effect positive change.
I am confident you will find that my experience matches the qualifications of the job I have applied for. I would be happy to sit down and discuss any questions you might have in determining my suitability for your agency. My contact information is listed at the top of my resume.
