Dear Mr. Carter:

With this letter I am responding to your ad for psychology practicum position. Currently a final year student of counseling psychology at the St. Claire’s Institute of counseling studies I possess an exceptional academic record – and my professors speak highly of my analytical, academic and interpersonal skills.

I offer:

• An Associate Degree in Psychology and ongoing B.S. in Counseling and therapy
• Excellent observation and listening skills with proven ability to develop and maintain positive relationships
• Extensive knowledge of modern and contemporary counseling techniques
• Ability to respect client privacy and confidentiality
• Full command on history taking, goal determining and chalking out therapeutic remedies based on cognitive and behavioral schools of thought

My strong assessment skills, track record of working professionally with colleagues and professors and volunteer experience with the Red Cross add more weight to my candidacy.

Believing myself to be a forerunner of your practicum position, I would like to see you in person to discuss the prospect in detail. I will call your office next week to set up a meeting date and time.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
