Dear Dr. Gevaise,
I am writing to express my strong interest in the Assistant Director of Data Analysis role. As I have studied the role description, I have become increasingly excited at the degree to which my experiences align with the key role requirements across the board. From my graduate work translating big data into useful information, to thecomplex process, policy, and interpersonal issues I navigated to complete that work, to my hands-on experience with non-profits, I believe the fit is a compelling one. 研究生求职信结构
The skills I acquired in researching and writing a dissertation in South American Cultural Studies will be enormously useful in this position. During my research in Uruguay, I became adept at navigating large data sets and translating themes in the data to useful information. During my dissertation I assimilated and analyzed over 6,500 pages of discourse, identifying patterns within that mass of text-based data and pulling out conclusions around those themes. I believe that this experience strongly foreshadows the work I would do as Assistant Director of Data Analysis, and speaks to my ability to convert data to actionable information.
Beyond my skill with parsing and analyzing data, I bring a grounded approach to solving complex problems.
During my doctoral field studies, I was often faced with problems that required multiple solutions. As a result, I learned to bring several solutions to the table, anticipate objections and prepare responses, and meet each issue with a plan, a contingency plan, and a back-up contingency plan. I believe that these skills will inform and enrich my work in researching and tracking potential donors.
Finally, I have hands-on experience working in donor development. Over the course of my 2012 internship wit the Wake County United Way, I analyzed the organization’s efficacy and wrote reports for prospective donors, which I presented in regional road shows; thus, I effectively provided a combination of research, marketing, and donor-facing support. From core data analysis, to complex problem solving, to field-based experience with donor development, I believe that my skills and experience make me an ideal candidate for this position.
I would relish the opportunity to take these skills to such a prestigious and forward-thinking organization such as Stratham College. Not only am I an ideal fit for the position but, as a graduate of Duke University, I also bring first-hand knowledge of the power and value of a liberal arts education, and would be delighted to represent an institution like Stratham. Finally, Stratham’s commitment to encourage “students to grow personally,professionally, and philosophically” and to “make a lasting mark” resonates strongly with me. The school’s commitment to this type of personal and social growth can only be continued with a strong endowment. I want to be a part of the team that fosters that mission. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Ms. Gillian Notelovitz
The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights/Leadership Conference Education Fund

Dear Ms. Notelovitz:
As a first-year Ph.D. student in Political Science at Duke University, I am writing to express my sincere interest in a Summer 2011 internship with the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and the Leadership Conference Education Fund. After speaking with several of my professors, I determined that the Leadership Conference internship provides an ideal opportunity for me to work and grow as I look to gain real-world experience in the policy arena. The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights is an important and influential coalition, and one to which I believe I can contribute my analytical skills and academic training.
My strong writing and research skills make me well qualified to perform the work and meet the challenges of an internship with the Leadership Conference.
My background in the study of American politics began during my undergraduate career, also at Duke University, where I earned a B.A. in Political Science and African & African American Studies. I conducted independent research on topics such as racial attitudes, political institutions, and policy outcomes as a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellow. As a Ph.D. student, I am working toward certification in the fields of Political Behavior & Identities and Race, Ethnicity, and Politics. My studies focus on civic discourse and the ways in which beliefs, attitudes, and social identities influence political decision-making, as well as the salience of race in American politics. 研究生求职信结构
The pursuit of my bachelor’s and doctoral degrees in these fields has helped me to develop my organizational and communication skills, as well as a nuanced understanding of political analysis, policymaking, and a number of other key issues facing disenfranchised communities. Furthermore, my prior internships and involvement as a student leader have provided me with substantial experience communicating and collaborating with people at all levels and across disciplines within organizations, successfully serving as a member of a team, and working with diverse groups of people.
My commitment to social justice and advancing research in racial and ethnic minority politics, coupled with my demonstrated skills, shows that I am ready and motivated to gain experience at the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and the Leadership Conference Education Fund this summer. Thank you for considering my
