Sample cover letter for Full Time position at UN
Political Affairs Consultant
Thank you for reviewing my resume and application for the position of Political Affairs Officer within the Europe Division of the Department of Political Affairs. I am confident that my diverse experience, interdisciplinary skill set, comprehensive understanding of advanced geopolitics, and drive to succeed make me a strong candidate to support the work of the United Nations—a long-standing personal goal.
My foundational experience with European politics came during my study of European politico-economic integration at the Center for XXX at XXX University. Specifically, I analyzed relevant issues, information, and public opinion across various political institutions based in XXX, XXX, XXX, and XXX. At the time, much of the conversation among intergovernmental organizations covered the lead up to the Russo-Georgian War and conflict in the South Caucasus. The induction and ensuing assimilation of key Eastern European states to the EU, concluding with the then-fresh admission of Bulgaria and Romania in 2007, was also a central focal point.
At the culmination of my academic endeavors in political science and international affairs, I published my honors thesis titled XXX. A prime component of my work and research encompassed the analysis of the cooperative roles and complex impacts of national governments’ and intergovernmental organizations’ confrontation of global security threats and brokerage of peace.
Professionally, I continued monitoring and reporting on political trends and conducting policy analysis as a specialist at the Office of U.S. Senator XXX. There, I gained unique experience researching, analyzing, and reporting on pressing current events for the Senator in the U.S. Federal Government.
In my most recent position, I specialized in politically oriented legal work within my Firm’s XXX and XXX groups. There, I designed data analysis methodology, led in-depth analysis and research projects, and presented findings to senior partners and client executives. Among the international legal issues on which I worked were the XXX-XXX Claims Tribunal pertaining to state-sponsored terrorist attacks, as well as an expropriation case representing a billion-dollar firm against the Republic of XXX at the XXX XXX in XXX.
I am confident that my experience and knowledge can prove valuable to the United Nations mission in Europe, the South Caucasus, and beyond. I am very enthusiastic about the prospect of applying my passion for international relations, and I’m hopeful for the opportunity to further discuss how I may become a key contributor to the United Nations initiative. Thank you for your time.
