RE: Ann. # MWRO-08-MP-0043
Dear Hiring Manager:
I am writing to apply for the position of GIS/Remote Sensing Specialist position in the Great
Lakes Network (GLKN) as advertised in announcement #MWRO-08-MP-0043. This position
came to my attention through Mike Smith,a previous supervisor and the GIS Analyst / Lecturer in
Michigan Technological University’s (MTU) School of Forest Resources and Environmental
Science (SFRES). I am currently finishing up my senior year as an Applied Ecology and
Environmental Science major at MTU. The following list highlights my skills that I believe will
allow me to make an immediate and valuable contribution to the International Conservation
Service:
GIS/Remote Sensing Experience–I have completed both an Intro to GIS course and a
masters level GIS course in addition to an Independent Study in GIS/Remote Sensing. I have
worked on several GIS projects including ortho-rectifying aerial photos from the 1940’s for
GLKN in addition to being the GIS analyst on my Integrated Resource Assessment (Senior
Design/Capstone) team.
Stand Survey Design-Accustomed to obtaining a list of stands that need surveys and
creating the protocol and procedure myself. In addition,I am familiar with many different
survey strategies and methods.
Communication and Interpersonal Skills–I am currently a Teaching Assistant for
Introduction to GIS for Natural Resource Management and have previously been a tour guide
for the Michigan Tech Admissions Department.
My interest in GIS/remote sensing stems from my coursework at MTU, where I developed an
appreciation for the necessity of accurate GIS/remote sensing analysis in the greater natural
resources fields. I especially came to this conclusion when I was attempting to integrate my two
primary interests of wetlands and fire caused disturbance. At some point in the future,I would like
to pursue a graduate degree looking at the interactions between wetlands and fire. As such, I
believe that strengthening my understanding of GIS/remote sensing, not only in my areas of
interest but also in natural resources as a whole, will greatly aid me in my future research.
I have attached my resume for your perusal and ask for the opportunity to interview with you at
your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time and consideration.I look forward to hearing
from you soon.
Sincerely,
John Doe
