Dear Ms. Frances Mcgee,

I am applying for the human rights officer position that was recently listed for your company Human Rights Watch.

I have earned a master’s degree in political science and speak three different foreign languages which would play a part in where the assignment is located. My education and experience includes a wide knowledge of social, cultural and economic human rights issues that are currently affecting the world in which we live. I also have a solid understanding of the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights which outlines the civil, social, political and cultural human rights that have to be observed for all of humanity.

I have great investigational skills which allow me to dig into all human rights complaints including discrimination, unlawful imprisonment, child labor and all types of intolerance. My communication skills have helped to interview victims, witnesses and violators to get to the truth and to deduce if an infraction was committed. With my observational skills, I can observe trials, elections and can monitor demonstrations to ensure no human rights are violated at those times.

It is understood that this line of work may take me to countries that are not safe or that are going through changes that are violent. While this could be a detriment to some, the basic rights of people is more important than my physical safety and I always take care to blend in with the local population as much as possible when needed.

If you would like to speak with me further please feel free to contact me at (111)-582-1664.
