Sample cover letter for Internship position at Sustainability Hub
Internal Relations Officer
I am writing to apply for the volunteer position of Internal Relations Officer at the Erasmus Sustainability Hub currently posted on SIN-Online. I have been following the development of the Erasmug and I am very interested in supporting this and other projects throughout the upcoming year. I believe that my curiosity, motivation and excellent communication skills make me suitable for this position.
Having studied in an international environment my whole life, I’ve had the opportunity to interact with a great variety of people and cultures. This has not only taught me how to communicate a message across to individuals and work efficiently within diverse groups but also aroused a sense of curiosity in me that allows me to connect easily with people. In addition to this, my education has enabled me to strengthen my language capabilities. I am fluent in Czech, my native language, as well as in English. I also have a good command in French and German.
During my Geographical studies at the European School of Luxembourg, I developed a strong environmental awareness. I learned about the impacts of human industry on the environment while studying global warming and tourism. During these classes I realized how important sustainability is for us to preserve the Earth for future generations and believe that one way to achieve this is to help businesses adopt sustainable environmental practices. I am also interested in sustainability because it is one of the key drivers behind innovation. This innovation is important for businesses because it not only includes inventing green products but also improving the business operations to become more effective by reducing costs and waste and also enhancing the brand image.
Another reason for my interest in this position is the fact that the Sustainability Hub has opened just recently and therefore I could directly contribute to its creation and growth. For this reason, and for the fact that the team is made up of volunteers, I also believe that the team will be passionate and enthusiastic about the different projects and therefore it will be fun working at the Hub. As a communicative person, I enjoy working in teams. I particularly appreciate the diverse opinions and perspectives that can be learnt from other group members.
As a quick learner and someone who enjoys learning through experience, I am eager to gain more hand on experience and practical knowledge offered by the position at the Sustainability Hub.
In closing, I am excited about the possibility of working at the Sustainability Hub and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
