Hanger Prosthetics & Orthotics

Dear Mr. Dick Hall:
In this letter of application I wish to apply for the Prosthetic/Orthotic Technician position announced on the Hanger web page. The enclosed resume; shows I will be graduating this spring from University of Minnesota with a BS in Liberal Art Science and will be attending Century College-White Bear Lake, MN for certification and advancement into the industry. My experience interning at Hanger, graduation from University of Minnesota, and handling company inventory make me a promising candidate for your company's future.
The internship I had the past two summers in Minneapolis, MN was a great learning experience, in helped me realize working with patient is a fulfilling career. I also learned to take pride in the work we did, when fabricating a patients prosthetic or orthotic device it has to look professional and be function able. My experience at Hanger has taught me that the patient is the number one priority, delivering anything less than a quality product is inexcusable and it reflects negatively on the company as a whole. Over the last two summers I've had the opportunity to learn and work on a wide range of orthotic and prosthetic devices, this experience has helped develop the skills needed in the industry. Hanger's dedication to delivering a quality product to their patients every time is why they're the industry leader, and I know I can help Hanger continue to grow as the industry leader in prosthetic and orthotic patient care.
Completing my Liberal Art Science degree from University of Minnesota has taught me important aspect about working with other people effectively. My course work in Business writing taught me good communication skills will help everyone become more efficient in the work they do. I've learned by communicating effectively and clearly will lead to a more efficient work environment, the time and effort taken to complete each job is reduced from not having to go back and explain yourself. I've also learned that being organized helps co-workers waste less time fumbling around trying to find missing work and more time on productive work.
My experience at Hanger, Multie Tech, and Corporate Express all dealt with working on company inventory. At Hanger new products, supplies, and return orders came in every day, which needed to be document, reorder, delivered to the practitioner, and put away in inventory, which was an important aspect to business. At Multie Tech the machine needed to be organized and reinstalled with new devices. This was one of the most important aspects to the job, if one wrong device was ever installed it would result in thousands of dollars wasted and leave production behind schedule. My experience at Corporate Express dealt with multiple stages of inventory, unloading, storing, and then reloaded for an outgoing shipment. This has provided me with the experience to manage and organize company inventory which could help Hanger become more efficient and productive.
I respectfully request an interview to meet with you and discuss the technician position available. I will be available beginning March to come in and interview with you and will be available to start work at the first of the year. Hanger's continuous advancement in the industry and my experience working as a team player will help Hanger become more efficient with its every day operations.
