Dear Mr. Charter:
During the summer of 2009, I was privileged to participate in one of your five-day sea kayaking trips led by Evelyn Whaley, a current field guide. After this experience, I decided to major in marine biology and ecology. This past May, I graduated from Boston University with my bachelor's degree. I have kept in touch with Evelyn, who alerted me to the Field Guide position posted on your website. I would be excited to join you as a Field Guide, and have enclosed my résumé detailing my qualifications.
From my coursework, community service, and travelling, I have extensive experience in environmental and conservation work. In addition, I have taken numerous courses on marine ecosystems, namely the Pacific coastal regions of southwestern Canada and the tropical Ecuadorian coast. The flora, fauna, and geographical makeup I studied in these Pacific systems is strikingly similar to that of the San Juan region—knowledge I would bring to the position and share with future clients.
I am a natural leader and remain calm and collected in stressful situations. These are essential qualities for a field guide because, in addition to a leader's knowledge, a guide must be trustworthy, confident, and enthusiastic so clients feel completely at ease throughout their excursion.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to consider me for the Field Guide position with Quest. I can be reached at email@example.com or 555-333-0000. I look forward to discussing my qualifications and background with you further.
