Dear Mr. Smith-Jones,

As a recent graduate of the social work program at Company Name I was excited to learn of the open DCF Social Worker position available at the Department of Human Services. I completed my Master’s program with a 3.2 gpa and gained valuable experience through a one-year internship.

I understand the emergency situations that I will encounter as a DCF Social Worker and I have excellent critical thinking skills to that end. I believe strongly that children should always be in safe and healthy environments. In my internship I managed a caseload of families in the DCF system as they worked toward reunification or went through the process of termination. My first priority is the children first and the family second. Children are too valuable to look the other way and I am a strong advocate for them. I believe in strongly protecting their interests while making certain they are safe secure and free from abusive environments.

If you contact my DCF internship supervisor you will agree that I would make an excellent addition as a caring DCF Social Worker. I encourage you to schedule an interview as soon as possible. I can be reached either via email or telephone.

“Dear Ms. Ruth Carter,

I am applying for the DCF social worker position that is posted for your agency, Kennedy Donovan Center.

I have a bachelor’s degree in social work and have worked with families for the majority of my career. I have a real love for helping families to get on track and when an issue comes up such as substance abuse, I can refer the person directly to the appropriate agency. It is my goal to attempt to keep families together when possible but I also understand that in some cases this may not always be possible.

I have strong organizational skills and can handle a large case load if it is required of me. I am also a great communicator and can diffuse any situation if it ever starts to become volatile. My interpersonal skills are also very good and I can work on my own or with a team.

I also understand that there may be travel required for this position and I have a solid vehicle and do not mind this aspect of the job. I also know that there may be times when I am required to work either nights or weekends and I am available for this.

I am very good at all Microsoft Office software as well as working directly from Outlook. I can write up legible reports and would always have them in on time.

Please feel free to contact me at any time to discuss your social worker needs by calling (555)-555-5555. I look forward to hearing from you.

“Dear Mr. Moore:

I read your job advertisement for a Social Worker position at Premier Health Partners with great interest, and am eager to work in this role. Owing to my knowledge of preparing and evaluating assessments, and developing and implementing social work plans, I will be an immediate and valued contributor to your facility.

My interest in social work stemmed from a 3-week volunteer position that I held at The Rainbow Children, while I was still in high school. The impact of what I saw and learned there was so intense that it led me to take this work seriously, and enroll in a degree program. Since then, I have been waiting with bated breath to work for an organization that holds social work on the pedestal that it deserves.

With some exposure to performing case management duties, coordination, casework intervention, and monitoring of social work service plans (owing to a recent internship at The Guild), I am positive that hiring me will only add to the solid reputation that your facility enjoys.

As things are now, I am sure that you can do with one more dedicated and skilled social worker to help your organization spread its wings wider.

At the end of next week, I will call your office to determine if you have a free time slot when I can meet with you in person. In the meantime, please feel free to call me at (000) 412-4124 if you need any additional information that my resume does not offer.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
