To Whom It May Concern:
It is without the out-most force or displeasure that I wrote this letter to you to emphasize how well Ms.Rojas will be to your liking at your University. My relationship with Ms.Rojas has always been very professional and graceful, as I am her 9th grade teacher for English. Through out the entire year Ms.Rojas has shown exceptional progress in creativity, determination, and knowledge to surpass even the most difficult of assignments.
Ms.Rojas has improved in all the three categorizes listed above. She also has improved her will to collaborate with other students to make the best possible outcome. As I view her tasks completed she has matured to pass my expectations. Ms.Rojas’s vocabulary is the volume of a classroom and uses it to her advantage. I have tried to test out her patience with putting her in groups of unfavorable intelligence with only and always being shown that she can take on any challenges and even does so with the best intentions to help the other students. Furthermore Ms.Rojas’s best asset is her maturity that can not be tainted by the ignorance of the more to high school life 9th graders.
In summation Ms.Rojas would love to attend your university with the mindset that all of her abilities will be challenged to the fairest point. This may be the case but I am certain that she will stand out and you shall be proud of her like I am.

To whom it may concern,
I am applying for the position of psychiatrist at Family Counseling Offices.
I understand that in order to have a chance at acquiring this position, a particular set of skills are required. I work well in a tense environment, and am capable of maintaining calm in the worst of situations. My previous jobs gave me the experience with children that this position requires. A few years ago, I acquired my doctorate in psychiatry after working as a psychologist for about two years. In all of the family cases that I handled prior to my application I was able to maintain a completely professional relationship with my clients. All of the family cases I handled were successful in the end due to my ability to remain neutral in all affairs.
I hope that I am considered a prospect for this position and that I soon hear from you for an interview. I believe my experience would be greatly beneficial to your offices and its patients. The main reason I hope to acquire this particular position is to heal the rifts that many families have. Family Counseling is a noble position that gives people the chance to lead a joyful family life.

I have always been a bit of an odd child. My mother has told me many stories of how i was as a toddler and a baby. All of those stories are completely different than what anyone would expect of a childhood story. While most children would splash and cover themselves in mud when sat on it, I would simply sit there calmly drawing shapes on it. I never crawled, preferring to walk first instead. I was simply a very calm child. To this day, I have never been completely orthodox. The most accurate way to describe me would be that I am very calm and mature, more so than any other person my age. I have always had a knack for giving advice. As I grew up, my friends would constantly speak to me about their emotional problems and I always did my best to fix their issues with words. Eventually, I began to notice that I was great at helping people feel better. That is when I realized that I wanted to be a psychiatrist.
Since elementary school, I have always excelled academically. I have never had any disciplinary problems. The only trips I ever took to the office were for the sole purpose of delivering something. Although I have always been a quiet person, I know when and how to have a conversation and/ or speak in front of a crowd. I mostly listen however, because I believe that I learn more about people that way. My most important value is respect. Without respect, a person is nothing and has nothing. If you treat everyone respectfully, you will be considered a great person. Professionalism and efficiency are two of the most vital qualities that a person needs to be successful. Without either of those, a workplace would not run smoothly. In order to help others with their emotional problems, one has to be serene and rational. I, fortunately, am in possession of those traits. Being able to help people has always been a vastly important part of the reason why I aspire to be a psychiatrist. It is a career that allows me to expand my skills on something that I have always done best, which is helping others work through their issues.
I believe that I would be a great asset to this University. My desire to learn will surely be beneficial to the program. I am completely dedicated to my future and will work beyond my limits to reach my goals.
