Cover letter PLEASE HELP !!! NEW CNA

  1. Just took my boards on Friday but won't know if I passed for a week or two but I need to hit the road and find a job.
    Does anyone have an example of a cover letter or know what I should do for my cover letter. I'm a new CNA with no work expereince.

    I have looked every where online and nothing seems to help with a CNA with no experience.

    To be completely honest with you, I really don't think you need a cover letter. I understand you don't have experience as a CNA but have you any experience in any other field or another line of work? Even babysitting counts as work experience. Simply go to the places of employment you are interested in and fill out an application. They don't generally ask for one anyway. You need not stress over a cover letter (unless otherwise specified by such employers) hope this helps

    It is ok that you don't have experience, but indicate that you are an enthusiastic learner (only if it is true, which I hope it is :-) Also, look up the organization's mission and values. Do you relate to them? If you do, let them know! Good luck friend

    i mean a cover letter much helps you get a job, but just as much another person without one could have gotten one that another one did not have. Everything helps as far work exp/non-paid, volunteer
