Dear Sir or Madam,
Please consider me for the position of Architectural Designer. I have ten years’ worth of professional industry experience including urban, commercial and residential as well as landscape architecture design. I would classify my design style as modernist and green / environmentally conscious. My work style is very similar to the software development phenomenon of ‘Agile Development’ such that I engage my partners, the stakeholders for whom I’m developing in like manner. I will take the business requirement and translate that into a techno-functional requirement based on my skill in Architecture vis-a-vis the Autocad software. I am also incredibly versatile with a number of Adobe software platforms including Photoshop and Illustrator among others such as MSFT Suite (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access) and Visio.
I have a keen eye toward design and can formulate a plan, with a strategy and tactics for completing a project on time and budget with respect to the stakeholder requirements. I have been using Autocad, in particular, for over 15 years and am able to utilize every function and aspect of that platform suite. Wherever or whenever there is a gap in understanding or methodology I will design images and other relevant collateral for the client in order to facilitate a functional plan that meets stated specifications which are amenable to all parties – including and especially the investment stakeholders.
I have held the title of Designer and Architect. I started working in this industry for my parents’ company, a geological firm engaging in site assessment for real property evaluation, transfer, and environmental site assessment and characterization as well as groundwater modeling for new Real Estate development initiatives. That experience conferred upon me an eco-friendly / environmentally sustainable perspective, which I apply to all my projects. I will provide high value to your firm in the area of Architectural Design as well as that from a perspective of ‘green’ or eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable in terms of industry best practices with respect to Real Estate Development and [residential / commercial] building (as well as landscape) Design.
I see myself as a key contributor to your team in terms of architectural design. I understand the design of the built environment is a collaborative endeavor and I am adept in developing design strategies, implementing new technologies and methods including the use of sustainable materials toward the goal of producing a sound design strategy. I am skilled in collaborating with various teams and stakeholders, providing key communications to facilitate awareness and timely as well as accurate results to achieve bottom-line results in a timely, orderly fashion. I define and implement standards according to best practices as well as take and give advisory regarding the same to my team members and cross-functional teams. I provide clear, thorough and concise documentation regarding strategy in accords with needs of my team and given priorities.
Thank you for your time. Please call me at your earliest convenience to schedule a time to discuss this further. Thank you!
