I got sent an email from my Student Admin Officer for a paid work experience position with SEQwater. They are after a:
3rd or 4th year
Urban and Environmental Planning
Regional Planning or
Environmental Science Student
2 weeks full-time during holidays
1 day a week during university
...The student will see aspects of catchment planning, third party advice provision, and environmental monitoring.
The situation is I have never studied catchment planning, assisted in environmental monitoring and have no idea what third party advice provision is.
They have requested a resume and a cover letter which I am having trouble writing as I don't think I am suitable. Should I even bother applying and if so, should I be honest about my suitability for the role? What aspects should I highlight in my cover letter?
Thanks in Advance
=Good for me
