For this semester’s service learning project, I would like to be considered for the position of researcher.
I am no stranger to research. Last summer, I began a massive undertaking: writing a comprehensive encyclopedia of North American folklore, mythology, and cryptology. This project, which I am still currently working on, has involved countless hours in various university libraries, researching a wide variety of topics, and learning how to conduct meaningful research online. While all the work I have done has been conducted in a recreational capacity, I have no doubt that the skills I have developed would transition well to professional research.
I thoroughly enjoy conducting research and in the time since I begun my encyclopedia, I have learned valuable techniques to organization. I can say with confidence that if I were the team researcher, I would be able to effective find relevant information and organize it in a system that was accessible to my other group members.
