RE: Patient Care Technician
I read with interest your posting for the position of Patient Care Technician on the Grady Hospital career site. I am a current student at the Kennesaw State University Nursing Program, enrolled in my second semester studies.
I have heard about Grady Hospital as one of the largest and the most unique hospitals in the US. I am excited about an opportunity to apply for this position to utilize my knowledge and test my interest in nursing during the summer break, and possibly later. I believe I possess the necessary skills and experience you are seeking and would make a good addition to your health care team.
I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you regarding this part time/full time position. If that would be convenient, I can be reached by the phone 770-597-8581 or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to set up the time to discuss the further requirements.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely, Iryna Kesel
