How To Land The Entry Level Counseling Job
Finding a job opening in the Psychology industry isn’t tough, but getting hired is a much bigger challenge. You need to demonstrate the skills and experience that hiring managers are looking for, and that’s why you need a well-written Entry Level Counseling cover letter.
How do you make a cover letter?
You make a cover letter by either creating one from scratch with a word processing program like Microsoft Word, or by working from a cover letter template specific to your industry. Make sure you customize your cover letter to the job you’re applying for. Never send a one-size-fits-all generic cover letter!
What do you say in a cover letter?
In a cover letter, talk about how your skills, talents, work experiences, and education tie to the role you’re applying for. Use the cover letter to dive deeper into a particular experience profiled in your resume, or discuss an anecdote that isn’t in your resume (but that relates to the job you’re applying for).
Do cover letters have to be one page?
Yes, a cover letter should be one page. A cover letter should consist of the following parts:
- An opening greeting
- A brief introductory paragraph
- One to two body paragraphs (no more than two)
- A brief closing paragraph
- A closing salutation, with your contact info (phone number, email address) included
