Dear Mr. Sharp,

I am submitting my resume for the position of Astronaut.

Ever since I was a student in elementary school, I dreamed of one day becoming an Astronaut. With that dream in mind, I navigated my scholarly career with a specific interest in science, and earned a bachelor’s degree in biological science from Texas A&M.

After earning my degree, I spent four years working as an assistant professor of biology. To supplement that experience, I also earned my pilot’s license. Over the course of my professional career, I have dedicated myself to biology, education and the advancement of scientific research. In collaborating with students and fellow professors, I have learned to communicate effectively, work with peers toward a common goal and carry out complex experiments in unpredictable environments.

Additionally, I am in excellent physical shape and meet all of NASA’s base requirements for blood pressure, height, vision and other factors.

Here are a few highlights of my qualifications and experience:

Earned a bachelor’s degree in biological science from Texas A&M

Worked as an assistant professor at Texas A&M for four years

Earned my pilot’s license

Completed a total of 300 hours of pilot-in-command time

Conceptualized, developed and carried out several experiments for inter-university research

I hope to have the opportunity to bring my love of science and passion for research to NASA.

I sincerely appreciate your time and consideration, and I look forward to discussing this position with you further.

All the best,

Mary Walker
