Dear Mr. Engr.John Man

I am completing a Master’s degree in Environmental Geology at Andalas University

with course work focusing on hydrogeology, water quality, and hydrogeochemistry. A
demanding course load, multiple campus leadership positions, and a variety of challenging
work experiences have prepared me for the rigors that comprise the Fellowship position, and
I am confident that I would be a great addition to the project.
My resume highlights my ability/knowledge/expertise in technical report writing and data
collection related to environmental assessments. I have had extensive experience in both
basic and applied research, plus over 2 years experience in planning and reporting of
hydrogeological investigations. The Fellowship position is very appealing to me because I
am interested in water quality and control of water resources for human protection. My long-
term goal is to gain more research experience with contaminant exposure and human health,
eventually leading towards a doctorate degree in Environmental Engineering focusing on
the cleanup and protection of surface and ground waters.

During my recent tenure at Green Company, I excelled in groundwater investigations

and developed knowledge for the implementation of environmental regulations. I quickly
gained a promotion where I was charged with planning and implementing geologic
investigations for entire projects. My project manager commended me for my efficiency and
effectiveness in report preparation, knowledge of the regulatory framework and guidelines,
and in identifying appropriate drilling locations to completely characterize release sites.
After only three months of employment, I was provided the opportunity to completely
manage multiple projects that included the evaluation of remedial strategies on a site-specific
basis and project correspondence with clients and environmental regulators. With this
responsibility, I became interested in the analytical chemical data and analysis procedures,
and how they relate to human exposure limits as I developed site-specific conceptual models
and conducted risk assessment modeling.

Through my professional experiences, I have developed excellent verbal and written

communications skills, and I am confident that my experience, education, and enthusiasm to
conduct extensive research will make me a strong candidate for the Fellowship position. I
have included my application package, and a recommendation letter from my former project
manager. Please do not hesitate to contact me at facebok; I look forward to meeting with you
so I can provide you with additional information to supplement what is provided in my
