Dear Hiring Manager,

I’m pleased to have the opportunity to apply for the BCBA position at Centurion Medical. I am passionate about working on a team of Behavior Analysts while helping clients through their treatment plans. I strive to maintain a low BCBA to client ratio of 1 to 6 and to keep my caseload organized and manageable even in a fast-paced and densely populated client environment. I also am excited about the possibility of working for a company that is known for its client early-intervention program and has been recognized for its innovative work with children on the autism spectrum.

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Behavior Analysis from Westwood University. I am also currently registered as a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst with the Behavior Analyst Board in the state. Additionally, for the past five years, I have worked with the most current data software in the BCBA field that sends treatment plans and other reports directly back to the insurance companies.

My experience as a BCBA extends to the surrounding community through my current position at ABC Medical through my volunteer work in offering my services at free clinics and visiting area schools to help in times of unforeseen trauma events. At the same time, I am responsible for my job caseload where I am responsible for consistent updating of treatment plans and making sure that each client receives consistent, quality therapy they deserve no matter how heavy my caseload becomes.

Thank you for considering my qualifications for the position of bcba at Centurion Medical. I look forward to discussing the position in greater detail and becoming a long-term BCBA with your company.

Application for BCBA Behavioral Analyst

Dear Hiring Manager,

As a BCBA-credentialed Behavioral Analyst with 3 years of experience supporting young clients, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I currently work as a Behavior Analyst for the City of Sunnybank’s One Step Forward, Two Steps Forward initiative, where I run individualized behavior intervention & curriculum programs for young children, students, and teens with autism spectrum disorder and other disabilities.

Mirroring your requirements, I work 1:1 with clients in clinic, school, community, and home settings. In close collaboration with parents, teachers and behaviour teams, I apply the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to help clients socially and behaviorally. I teach specific skills and behaviors, aligned with the goals, objectives and strategies identified in their treatment plan, to decrease problem behaviors while improving focus, attention, memory, social skills, and academics. I have been recognized by schools for my high success rate after clients complete the program.

In addition to my professional experience and BCBA credential, I hold a Master of Social Work and a Bachelor of Early Childhood Development.  

I have loved my time with Sunnybank. My decision to leave is solely based on our family’s decision to relocate. After researching your district in detail, I feel excited and confident about our mutual fit.

Please find attached my résumé for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours sincerely,
