If you are looking to be a Psychologist and begin applying for jobs then you will have already completed your training as a Psychologist and be degree educated in psychology and have done the practical training and work experience required to work as a qualified psychologist.
A psychologist looks at a person’s behaviour and experiences and helps them to understand how they behave and react and deal with certain situations. You will need to understand the behavioural traits people have and have excellent listening and communication skills.

Application for the role of Psychologist
I would like to apply for the role of Psychologist that you have got advertised in (where) and (when).
I completed my degree in Psychology (at what university and when, provide any more details here about the course). I have done (what training, work experience and relevant courses that you are required to do before being able to practice as a Psychologist).
I am now looking forward to beginning my career properly within psychology and was very interested to see your job advertisement and would like to be considered for this role. (Have you got any specific experience as per their advert eg: is it working with adults or kids and have you had specific experience that you could put in here?).
I am a very calm and mild mannered person who acts in a fair and firm way both in my working and personal life. I enjoy trying to help people which is the basis for the choice of career as I feel people with psychological problems don’t always find the best help they possibly can and I feel that I can make a difference.
I am an excellent communicator and listener and like to help people in times of difficultly to reach a better place in their life. I enjoy learning new skills and will keep learning what I can to be good at my role.
I have enclosed my CV for your consideration. Should you be interested in my skills please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV.
