Dear Mr. Crumpton:

I saw the posting on JobBankUSA.com for employment as a rehabilitation counselor at Community Rehab. I'd like to apply for that job and that is the purpose of my cover letter today. I have experience both with patients and their families. I specialize in assisting caregivers and family members in their decisions about how to best serve their loved ones. Many of my former patients are now living independent lives and are contributing members of our society.

Rehabilitation counselors in conjunction with physicians, psychologists and occupational therapists create a program that will help a patient make wise choices regarding employment, living situations, recreation, and daily care.

I love this work and would be very grateful to join your team of therapists and other health care professionals. I'd be happy to meet with you in person if you'd like to get a feel for my personality and hear more about my experience. Please call 333-345-6787 for an appointment that works for your schedule.
