Re: Posting 101 Associate Director II

 

Dear Ms. Darwin:

 

When I read your ad for an Associate Director II on the MarylandWorks.com job site, I couldn't help noticing how well your requirements align with my experience, education, skills, and background.

 

While my enclosed resume provides a good overview of my strengths and achievements, I have also listed some of your specific requirements for the position and my applicable skills:
You require: I offer:
Ability to coordinate and oversee the work of subordinates. Experience in supervising 25 office employees and ensuring staff efficiency as a public-health program director.
Ability to strategically plan, develop and implement programs and operations toward achievement of team's mission, goals, and objectives. Experience developing and implementing treatment programs as a public-health program director.
The analytical skills to perform needs assessments, evaluate current programs, and initiate changes or adjustments to current systems and improve operations. Success in having brought order out of chaos at an inner-city health clinic and vastly improving processes there.
Problem-solving and decision-making abilities. Success in solving numerous problems at clinic, such as reducing number of emergency and drug-seeking patients; lobbying for HIV-information dissemination; and increasing number of patients that could be given routine care.
Financial and personnel management expertise. Expertise in both areas, through public-health and office-management background.
Interpersonal and communication skills that promote ability to serve as a liaison and resource. Significant experience giving presentations, speaking persuasively, and interacting successfully with diverse individuals.
Since my experience and expertise fit your requirements so closely, I am clearly one of the people you'll want to see. I plan to contact you to follow up on this letter and see if we can arrange a meeting. In the meantime, please feel free to call me at my home number listed above. I look forward to our meeting. Thank you for your time and consideration.

 

Sincerely,

 


 

Bonnie Ellisberg
