Samples of cover letters for a PCA with no experience

If you are a recent graduate or you have zero experience, writing a good cover letter is vital as it helps your employer identify who you are and what you can offer to the organization. When writing a cover letter as a fresh graduate here are some of the things to include in the letter:

  • Mention your fresh knowledge. Use your recent learning experiences to your advantage; an employer might be more willing to hire you if they know you can help their business acclimate to new technologies or practices.
  • Express your energy and enthusiasm. It shows the potential motivation you will bring to a job as a fresh college graduate.
  • Check your grammar and proofread your letter. It is a way of showing employers your ability to write comprehensive, error-free messages.

The best format for writing a cover letter is:

  • The first step is addressing the employer with a formal salutation. For example, “Dear/Hello (name of the recipient).” If you do not know the name of the recipient, you can refer to them as the hiring manager.
  • The next step is to state the position you are applying for and how you found the opening. For example, “I am applying for the role of Marketing Coordinator at Tallson Financial Services. I originally came across the job posting on a professional networking site and was immediately intrigued by your employer's mission to help those in need.”
  • Make a brief statement about why you're interested in the position.
  • Since you are a recent graduate, it would help to emphasize your college coursework, internships, and other experiences that show your employability.
  • Ensure your qualifications are similar to the job position. 
  • Conclude your letter with a forward-looking statement. For example, “I look forward to discussing the position with you further.”

Dear Hiring Manager,

I am excited about the opportunity to apply for the personal care assistant position at Care For All. I recently completed my bachelor's degree in support work at Clearwater University, preparing me to begin my career in this field. I hope to apply my current skills while developing new abilities if successful in securing this position.

While I have not held a formal Support Worker position, I interned at the Green State Hospital for three years during my studies. During my time at the hospital, I acquired valuable skills that I hope to use as a Support Worker. I developed strong interpersonal communication skills by working closely with patients and learned how to administer medicine effectively based on each patient's requirements.

My ability to remain calm during challenging situations and my empathy for others equipped me to provide caring support while in this role. I'm looking forward to learning from you at Care For All. I am happy to answer any questions regarding my application. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Rebecca Smith”

Mr. Jeremy Day

Hiring Manager

Right At Home

6586 Goshen Road

La Place, LA 08565

Dear Mr. Day:

As an individual who is inherently compassionate and has great respect for life, I pose an excellent choice to hire for the role of a personal care assistant at Right At Home.

Providing bedside and ambulation care is my passion. I am eager to work patiently with people who may not be able to handle their most personal needs, such as bathing and toileting on their own.

I believe that the work of a personal care assistant is truly rewarding from all aspects – one gets to do what one likes doing, and the reward is pure gratitude. I am fully aware of the challenges faced by a personal care assistant. Having looked after an elderly aunt suffering from dementia, I am somewhat well-versed in living up to the emotional and physical demands this work presents. And I am geared up for it.

As an energetic personal care assistant, I would like to meet with you to discuss your expectations further. Please feel free to call me at (000) 965-8547 to set up an interview date and time.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Grace Myers
