Dear Ms. Keibler,
I read with interest your ad for a Medical Interpreter and am submitting my resume for your review and consideration. As I reviewed the job requirements listed in the ad, I became aware that I not only meet those requirements, but exceed them. You specifically require an English/Spanish medical interpreter, and with certification in medical terminology and fluency in both languages, I meet your needs. In addition, though, I am also certified by the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf.
In my current position as a Contracted Interpreter, I assume aspects of both agency and freelance interpreter, depending on the needs of the agency/client. There have been times when both my spoken language and American Sign Language (ASL) and Spanish Sign Language (SSL) skills were needed to assist Spanish speaking families with hearing impaired family members with medical issues.
While it may not come up on a regular basis, my particular skill-set comes in handy for families with that double barrier to communication. I was raised in a Spanish speaking home with a deaf sibling. I have had that first hand experience.
I look forward to speaking to you in person to discuss how I can add to your organization’s ability to help each of your clients understand their medical standing and requirements. Thank you for your time and consideration.
There are plenty of opportunities to land a position, but it won’t just be handed to you. Crafting a cover letter that catches the attention of hiring managers is paramount to getting the job, and LiveCareer is here to help you stand out from the competition.
