Public Policy Institute of California

Dear Public Policy Institute of California,

I am writing in regards to the Center Director and Senior Fellow position. Based on the job description and my research of your organization, I believe that I am a strong candidate for this role.

I have 5 years of professional experience, including management experience in a nonpartisan, policy-focused research organization. In addition, I have led research teams and engaged with diverse stakeholders such as policymakers, interest groups, and funders. Furthermore, I have successfully raised funds, written grant proposals, and managed budgets.

Lastly, I have developed and executed strategic plans while effectively leading high-performing teams for a sustained duration. My experience working cross functionally with other groups in an organization has prepared me well for this role. My familiarity with California water and natural resource issues makes me an ideal candidate for this position.

I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my qualifications further during an interview. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Julia Erdkamp
