Dear Name of Contact,
I am writing in application for the RCE Project Coordinator position being offered by the National
Geographic Society, as advertised on the Insider. I am a 2005 college graduate currently working as the intern
for the Center for Sustainable Destinations (CSD), at the Society. Prior to this position I was employed by
SRA International, Inc., as an Environmental Policy Analyst on the EPA’s land use programs (including work
on the Brownfields, Superfund, and Land Revitalization projects). I am applying for the position of Project
Coordinator because I believe it is a position for which I am well-suited, given the background I have gained
working with you in the intern position and my strong interest in and commitment to the CSD geotourism
After spending almost a year gaining experience as a policy analyst working with SRA International, I left the
company in September in order to move to National Geographic. I did so with the intention of enhancing the
breadth and depth of my background in conservation and sustainable development, gaining experience in
program and project coordination within a dynamic and challenging work environment, and strengthening
my writing and communications skills. During my time at the Geographic I believe I have succeeded in each
of these pursuits, and have taken the opportunity to engage myself fully in both the work of the Center for
Sustainable Destinations and the National Geographic Society at large.
It is my desire at this time to continue to work with the Center as a full member of the staff so that I may
contribute more fully to CSD’s mission and programmatic development, as well as enhancing and expanding
my commitment to the program. I’ve truly enjoyed the experiences I’ve had and projects on which I’ve
worked since beginning as an intern at National Geographic, and hope that my continuing enthusiasm for
and interest in working towards sustainable destinations will make me a strong candidate for the Project
Coordinator position.
Should you wish to contact me I can be reached at email address or at phone number. Thank you very
much for your time and consideration, and I look forward to speaking with you.
