Dear Mr. Burdwell,
I am writing to apply for the 911 Dispatcher position with the Pulaski County Emergency Department. I have over ten years of experience working in mental health and crisis management which I believe lend itself well to the kind of high-pressure work seen by a 911 Dispatcher.
In my current position as Crisis Intervention Counselor with the Lighthouse Mental Health Center I provide immediate and emergency counseling to members of the community who are experiencing a crisis. I have excellent critical thinking and communication skills with the ability to think on my feet and address issues as they arise.
My knowledge of counseling theory allows me to provide the kind of assistance each individual needs at the time. I have a calming disposition and an intuitive nature that people seem to appreciate. I’ve been praised by my past supervisors for my ability to help clients to feel at ease and to assist them in reaching their goals. I thrive in a fast-paced environment and would welcome the chance to contribute my skills to the local community as a 911 Dispatcher for the Pulaski County Emergency Department.
I am confident you will find me to be an extremely qualified candidate for your 911 Dispatcher position. Please contact me at your earliest convenience to schedule an interview to discuss how my background in mental health counseling can transition well to this position. Thank you for your time.
