To whom it may concern,


I am writing to express my interest in the position of Dietitian/Nutritionist at your institute.

I’m a qualified dietitian committed to helping people eat well and lead healthy lifestyles. I have a Bachelor of Health Science(Nutrition) from Lebanese American University. I’m a Liscenced Dietitian and completed my 9months internship at UMC-Rizk Hospital.

Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than helping people achieve their health and weight loss goals. I’m a great motivator and can adapt my approach to different personalities. I also thrive on creating networks and have a strong ability to communicate nutritional advice to people from different backgrounds. Seeing people transform themselves through healthy eating and lifestyle changes gives me a great sense of satisfaction and I would love to help spread the healthy eating message at your institute. For the last 1 month, I’ve worked at International Orthodox Christian Charity screening Syrian refugees, assessing them, and providing them with essential vitamins if necessary.

In this role I have helped refugees develop eating plans which allow them to maintain healthy lifestyles, often around allergies, specific health issues and weight loss goals.

My computer skills are well developed, including the use of Microsoft Office applications, excel, Powerpoint. I would love to join the dedicated team at your institute to help clients achieve their goals. My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.


Kind Regards

Catherine Hajj
