Dear Personnel Representative:
I will be graduating in May from Penn State University with a degree in Geosciences
(emphasizing hydrogeology) and am seeking employment as an entry-level hydrogeologist.
There are three primary skills that I have developed to apply as an entry-level hydrogeologist:
1. Field skills and experience, which are usually primary responsibilities in entry-level
positions. I have conducted my own research for my senior thesis, which involved
implementing borehole dilution tests to determine the groundwater velocity in a coal
aquifer. I also have extensive coursework field experience, ranging from summer
field school to water and soil sampling at polluted sites.
2. A strong interest in contaminant transport and groundwater modeling. This interest,
coupled with good computer skills, provides opportunities for the use of groundwater
and chemical modeling software packages. Hydrogeology and geochemistry coursework
have equipped me with the theoretical basis for modeling, and an introduction to
software packages. My work experience has also involved extensive PC skills. Although
I have had only preliminary opportunities to apply these skills to groundwater modeling
packages, I am confident that I can become proficient with such packages.
3. Good communication skills. Good writing and speaking skills allow for effective
communication within a company and with clients. My studies have provided me with quality
writing experience. I am currently completing my senior thesis, which involves a written and
a 30-minute multimedia public presentation. Throughout my studies, I actively worked to
improve my writing and gain experience writing for a variety of audiences.
My resume is enclosed for your reference. I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you
to discuss my career opportunities with your company. Please feel free to contact me at (827)
841-6836. I look forward to hearing from you.
