Cover Letter Question
Hello, So I'm looking for a full time job. The ads I am applying to are specialized and so is some of my background. I see a job for a Paralegal/Legal Assistant. They need with 3-5 years workers comp experience. I have a legal/medical background which includes coding, have worked in a doctors office and hospital many years ago and have a coding certification. I don't have workers comp experience but feel the urge to go forward with applying to this job. How would I get the cover letter to mesh with my medical background that lacks their specific 3-5 years workers comp experience. I'm n
Hi, I hope that you are doing well. I would go forward with your application. In your cover letter, be sure to outline your medical background and state some specifics, such as coding, administrative duties, etc. Go online and review some specific articles and information about worker's comp. You can then add to your cover letter that you have familiarity with worker's compensation, statutes and processes. You can also add that you are passionate about continuing education and are a very quick learner.
Use the time between your application and hopefully interview to study up a bit on worker's compensation. Learn what it is, how it works etc on sites such as About.com or talk to some specialists in Human Resources. This will help you better prepare for the interview and demonstrate you are informed and only need to know the specifics should they hire you.
Good luck, I hope it goes well.
