Homework Help: Writing Sentences and Paragraphs

Posted by Shawna on Tuesday, January 3, 2012 at 8:47pm.

You’ve applied for a specific job in your field of study. The Human Resources Department arranges an
interview and tells you to bring with you a polished piece of writing for them to evaluate your writing
skills. The paragraph must describe one particular experience you’ve had that inspired you or guided
you to choose the type of position for which you applied.
Your audience is your potential employer and your purpose is to show you have thought carefully
about what and/or who has motivated you toward this career choice and why. In addition, you want
to convey your enthusiasm for this position as it relates to your inspiring experience. Take time to
think about what your audience wants to know and strive to reach a balance between informal and
formal business writing.
1. Prewrite about your field of study and create a specific job for which you might want to apply
at a particular business or organization in your area. Outline what that position would look like.
Brainstorm details, names, titles, and facts to provide depth to your paragraph and enable you
to write a polished paragraph.

Below is my paragraph. Could someone tell me if i've done what is required and if I have poor grammar or errors. Any help editing would be appreciated.

In response to your job listing in my local newspaper. I understand you are seeking a Medical Administrative Assistant, to work in Fletcher Allen Hospital located in Burlington, Vermont. I understand in this required position, you must have the ability to; answer incoming calls, schedule appointments, check the patients in and out, as well as chart preparations and obtaining insurance information. I have myself, been in and out of hospitals throughout the years due to Tenosynovitis De Quervains. It has inspired me to want to give back to people and assist them with their medical issues to ensure their process runs efficiently and smoothly. It was always reassuring to know, throughout my surgeries that someone was there to assist me. To make each step on my way in a little more comforting and easy. I would like nothing more than to be able to give that reassurance back. Whether it be a simple appointment or a surgery about to be done. I beleive I am qualified for this position due to the following facts: I have the determination to work hard, the compassion to understand other people and their needs, and the ability to work well under pressure alone or in a team environment. After much research into different fields for an administrative assistant, I beleive what means most to me personally is the ability to help facilitate people in their time of need. I do not beleive I can find this in an office setting, which is why I have chosen the medical assistant position through Fletcher Allen.
