Re: Clinical Psychologist role
Dear Ms Washington,
I am writing to apply for the position of Clinical Psychologist, as advertised recently on SEEK.com.au.
Having completed a Master of Clinical Psychology at Charles Sturt University in 2007, I have spent the past 6 years working as a therapist and clinical psychologist in a range of environments. This includes working with young people who had experienced some form of trauma and who were displaying behavioural difficulties. My recent work has included interventions such as counselling, behaviour modification, cognitive therapy and mediation for a variety of clientele.
My extensive experience has seen me work with both adults and children of varying ages and cultural backgrounds, presenting with a diverse range of complaints and conditions. I am able to communicate effectively with clients and adapt my style and techniques according to individual needs and personalities. I enjoy the challenges of working with different people and find the work incredibly rewarding.
I greatly admire the work you do at Townsville Therapy Clinic and would welcome the opportunity to work with your team, bringing my skills and experience and also learning from your practitioners.
Thank you for your consideration of my application and I look forward to hearing from you.

Re: Psychology Intern | Advertised on Monster
Dear Ms. Green:
I am impressed by ABC School’s reputation as the “school of choice” for clinical team excellence. I am equally dedicated to helping children succeed academically, socially and emotionally, and am applying for the psychology internship advertised on Monster.
Currently, I am completing a master’s degree in school psychology at XYZ University. The courses, practicum, and internship experience at DEF School have given me a solid foundation in relevant areas, including:
- Conducting psycho-educational tests to appraise the emotional, social, behavioral and educational status and needs of students referred for psychological services
- Communicating diagnostic test results to students and family members
- Working with parents to help them understand the needs and problems of their children and manage their children’s behavior in a constructive manner
- Determining appropriate services and programs beneficial to students with special learning needs
- Providing psychological counseling, behavioral strategies and therapeutic services to children, teens and adults
I plan to pursue a career in school psychology with a focus on students with special needs, and am confident that I will quickly become a value-adding member of your clinical team. If you agree, please call me at (555) 555-5555 or email email@example.com to schedule a meeting. Thank you.
