Your posting from the Syracuse Daily News is of great interest to me. In the next month, I will be retiring from the State of New York and am seeking a challenging, rewarding and flexible opportunity. My resume is enclosed for your review.
Project and program coordination and management have been a staple of my career with the state, beginning in Social Services (Foster Care and Child Protection Services) and concluding in the Division of Parole. Beyond tenure in these departments, I have been an instructor, trainer and curriculum developer … director of two nonprofit organizations … and the designer and first coordinator of a public school’s home/school program. Contributing to my community has always been important; notable current involvement includes President of the East Syracuse–Minoa Central School Board, Uniform Instructor for the Sea Cadets and Councilman for the Town of East Syracuse.
Educational credentials earned include a BS in Criminal Science with graduate studies in Social Work as well as Psychology. I am a Certified Peace Officer in line with my Parole Division experience. I have completed diverse professional development as well as training necessary to serve responsibly in several volunteer capacities.
In addition to my well-honed interpersonal and communication skills, positive attitude and dedication, my familiarity with your service area and established contacts in it would be beneficial. I am very comfortable having accountability for an organization’s effective use of its resources and am confident in my ability to contribute positively as your Projects Coordinator. It would be a pleasure to discuss this opportunity with you in greater detail, and I will contact you soon to discuss the possibility. I look forward to talking with you soon.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
