Psychologist Cover Letter

Introduction

A psychologist cover letter must captivate reader's attention and give him an accurate description of the qualifications you hold for this job. Please remember that complements your resume and is not a substitute for it. Cover letter has its own importance and it should be prepared wisely so as to communicate effectively with the reader.

Psychologists are healthcare professionals specializing in providing mental health assistance and counseling to the patients who face some sort of mental disorder. This disorder can be caused due to a financial or emotional turmoil, sexual or substance abuse, a physical injury or any other incident that affects normal working of the brain. The psychologist has to study the behavior and habits of the patient and provide counseling and treatment according to the symptoms.

How to write a Psychologist Cover Letter

You are not required to present a fancy document in the name of cover letter. An employer picks a cover letter with an intention to know whether or not you are qualified candidate, that's it. Being in a healthcare profession, you need to exhibit your experience and skills in such a way that the employer regards you as a highly qualified individual in terms of education and experience. You should also explain as to how you connect with the patients despite them being in an abnormal state of mind sometimes.

With a sample cover letter of a psychologist, you will understand how to present yourself in a letter and convince the prospective employer about your proficiency.

Dear Ms. Graham,

I met Anna B. Schultz yesterday and she told me about the ingoing recruitment of psychologists in your organization. Having practiced psychology for around ten years, I would now like to offer my services to your organization.

I completed my education with a Master's Degree in Psychology and also did PhD in Psychology Practices from Washington University of Medical Science. I started working for Caroline Healthcare Foundation as an Assistant Psychologist and got promoted as a Psychologist two years later. I treated patients with mild to severe psychological disorders and assisted in various projects of behavioral research of humans and animals as well.

I have also counseled patients with a history of substance and sexual abuse and helped them to lead a normal life without getting affected by the past incidents.

It would be a pleasure to work for your organization and I can assure you that my experience will be an added advantage to your already efficient organization. Kindly let me know if I can appear for an interview by calling me on 719-820-3645 or send me an e-mail on Gabriel.kfelton@freemail.com.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,
Gabriel K. Felton
