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 master’s
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 speaking with you
John Doe
