Desired Position: GIS Technician Job Code: GC-1-24053
Reply to Email:
Preferred Location: ANY
Posted on: 2015-02-26
Qualifications: Dear Hiring Manager,

I am a recent graduate of Texas Tech University.
In August 2014 I received a BA in Geography and a
minor in Geographic Information Science. With a
thorough background in GIS and ESRI products, I
hope you will consider me to be a strong applicant
for the position. I have been exposed to all sides
of GIS from spatial analysis, programing,
cartography, field mapping, Internet mapping,
geodatabase manipulation, and remote sensing.

The education and experience that I gained as a
student at Texas Tech University has prepared me
for a job as a GIS Analyst, but also taught me the
life and social skills necessary to work with a
company like yours. I currently have five years
experience with ArcMap and other GIS software
platforms. At Texas Tech I was a teaching
assistant for geospatial analysis for a semester
as both an undergraduate and graduate student. It
was extremely challenging, as I had the
opportunity to balance my class schedule while
also teaching three labs a week. Having the
opportunity to teach was a very valuable
experience, as I embraced the challenge and grew
to love teaching.

As Geography has become an integral part of a
globalizing world, Geography is not just studying
maps or the physical characteristics of the world;
yet, Geographers have the ability to connect both
the social and natural sciences. Studying the
relationships between how people interact within a
surrounding environment is very important to what
I want to study throughout my career.

It is important for me to work for a company that
is pushing the limits of what the future might
hold. The future is promised to no one, and
without ambitious action goals may never be

Thank you for your consideration,

Michael Harrigan
