Dear Ms. Wallace:

My experience as a family social worker in private practice for six years has prepared me well for the flow of interviews, house visits, and documents necessary to work out situations with families, the court system, and the children and young people who are often victims of misguided parents who come through Child Protective Services.

I am looking for employment with this department in your city and would welcome an hour or so with you to show you my records, my college degree in social work, and my recognition as a social worker in good standing with the state of Nebraska.

Let's meet one day next week if you have time. I can come to your office at your convenience. Just give me a call at 897-879-9999 and let me know the day and hour that work for you.
