C: Letter of Intent (500 words)

  1. You are applying to a prestigious counselling agency to complete the practicum requirements for your master’s degree. Write a letter of intent to the director of the agency describing your counselling attributes and personality traits. You should build a strong rationale for why you are an excellent candidate for the counselling intern position using the data from sections A and B.
  2. Support your rationale using 3 peer-reviewed journal articles published in the last 5 to 10 years in the personality and individual differences literature.
    1. You may use the course textbook as one of these sources.
  3. The letter of intent should be 500 words (+/- 50 words) excluding title and reference pages.
  4. The letter should be written in APA 7 format. For guidance, check out the Library (click Learning Support and then the tab called APA Writing Guides).

Example of a current peer-reviewed journal article from the academic literature:

Heinonen, E., & Nissen-Lie, H. A. (2019). The professional and personal characteristics of effective psychotherapists: A systematic review. Journal of Psychotherapy Research, 30(4), 417-432.[A1]

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"
Rajab M.Rajab M. has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied

I was shocked by how your writers managed to deliver my paper on time, and I was among the best in our class in that paper. Thank you so much and I will never hesitate to use you
