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 ba@somedomain.com to schedule a meeting. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Barbara Andrews
