Upon review of the Sustainable Cities Intern position with Global Green USA , I felt compelled to submit my resume for your consideration. With my Urban Studies and International Relations coursework as well as my strong abilities in urban and global policy research, venture capital and social finance, and data collection and analysis—I am confident that I would contribute to the Global Green USA team greatly. With a solid foundation in urban policy research, community development research and engagement, marketing and sales, and social financing development, I have developed strengths with interpersonal communication, risk assessment and mitigation, and problem solving.
Highlights of my background include:
● Research on urban policy and community development initiatives, including smart growth development and initiatives in urban areas and community economic empowerment via land trusts, understanding that issues at the urban scale can be solved through social, environmental, and economic innovation.
● Interning in London, England with Good Innovation, a certified B Corporation focused on innovation consultancy, product development, and growth and development. At Good Innovation, I am working on a social finance and seed investor project, extending the organization’s influence in the field of high impact-investing through research on angel and seed investing, angel investing networks active in the United Kingdom, and developing methods of outreach to establish a network of high net-worth investors for future campaigns with Good Innovation.

● Served as a student representative for LMU’s Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts during a meeting with Career and Professional Development Staff, Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts staff, and the Dean of Bellarmine College to offer student perspective on professional events organized by the administration.
● Represented Fordham University as a student fundraiser, working to foster a dynamic relationship with the alumni community and the university by answering questions regarding Fordham’s initiatives, listening to alumni’s concerns, and diffusing conflictual situations.

With my previous professional experience, coupled with my educational background at the intersection of urban studies and environmental sustainability, I hope to be part of the Global Green USA team as a Sustainable Cities Intern. I look forward to discussing this opportunity, and my qualifications, in further detail.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Best,

Arturo Jacobo
