Your local newspaper published an advertisement asking people to help with protecting the environment. Write a letter to offer your help to the project manager and say
– Why are you interested?
– What can you help with?
– When can you start?
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing this letter to express my interest in the environmental protection volunteer position, which was advertised on Bundoora Daily last Monday.
Currently, I am studying my Masters of Environmental Engineering at the University of Melbourne. My goal is to work in an engineering company as a project manager and provide environmental-friendly solution to develop sustainable infrastructure. Therefore, your position can help me prepare for my future career. I have vacation work experience with the Australian Environmental Protection (EPA) agency. This helped me connect to professional environmental engineers, scientists and consultants. I can use my network to promote your project at a larger scale and possibly find a sponsor.
I am able to commence working with your team from the 1st of December. However, I cannot attend your training due to my exams. If you have any further question, please contact me via the details above.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
