Please accept my application for the open position of Marketing Director at your organization. A love of wildlife and a passion to protect the endangered species throughout the northwest have always driven my professional life. I have devoted my life to preservation, and I believe that I have the dedication and experience to bring results to your company.
Jacques Deval's observation that "God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages" has always inspired me to promote change. I believe that the preservation work you do at XYZ is essential in raising awareness for the Bald Eagle, Aleutian Canada Goose, Burrowing Owl, and Common Loon. I was inspired by the smart, savvy way that you raised funds within the community by introducing wildlife tours, informative commercials, and exhibits at the local zoo.
While I believe that passion and dedication to a cause are the most important traits for working in a nonprofit, I do not believe that they are replacements for strong work experience, skills, or creativity. As the Communications Director for ABC Company over the last nine years, I have worked hard to ensure that I am the most qualified person to make the changes I want to see in the world. These qualifications include:
- Raised $12,000 in donations with an aggressive campaign to reverse habitat destruction throughout the state of Washington.
- Successfully applied for and received grants from the NWRA ($50,000), ASPCA ($62,000), and the Animal Welfare Trust ($22,000)
- Negotiated development in the Colville National Forest for the expanded habitat of bald eagles by 200 acres.
My dedication to this cause is unmatched and I look forward to speaking with you further about what we might do together to keep our beautiful native birds thriving. Thank you for your consideration.
