Ella O’Donnell
Assistant Director
Boston International Center
12 Todd St.
Boston, MA 02215

Dear Ms. O’Donnell,

I am interested in applying for the Assistant Social Worker position at the Boston International Center. I am a Linguistics and Comparative Language double major and International Relations minor at Boston University, and would love for the opportunity to work at the Irish International Immigration Center.

As a student at Boston University, I understand the challenges of finding employment and housing in the city and I am very familiar with Boston navigation and transportation. I would love to share what I’ve learned from my own experiences with other young people who are looking for housing and jobs, a key part of this position as mentioned in the position description. As a young person in Boston, I have both personal and professional experience with the hunt for housing and jobs, as I have been through the rigors of finding my own housing in Boston, and also interned with the Boston University Career Services Center.

In addition, I have strong communication skills that would be very useful for this internship. This past fall, I interned full-time for a Massachusetts senator in the Democratic Headquarters. Coupled with being responsible for online research regarding electoral issues, I interacted directly with voters, politicians, and congressmen, sharpening my communication abilities on all levels. I believe that my prior work experience provides a solid foundation for the duties of the Assistant Social Worker position.

As a young Bostonian, I would look forward to helping others make the most out of their Boston experience. I am outgoing and personable, yet also a responsible worker. Thank you very much for your consideration! I look forward to hearing from you.
