Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to apply for a position at your Office.
I graduated from a Portuguese Architecture University - Faculdade de Arquitectura, Universidade Técnica de Lisboa – in 2009. During my course I had the opportunity to do the Erasmus Program in Politécnico di Milano in Italy. In my last year at University I started working in ARC-arquitectos, an architectural practice in Lisbon.
At ARC, I had the opportunity to work as Junior Architect, participating in the concept, licensing, implementation and monitoring of various projects, such as residential buildings, an art gallery, wineries in Portugal and public facilities for Angola. I then embraced the opportunity to do an internship at VVM - Ventura Valcarce, Arquitectos office, in Barcelona, Spain, through the INOVCONTACTO
program. At VVM I participated in the concept of various projects, such as urban interventions, shopping malls and a Library.
After returning from Barcelona, I started working at PRO-architects and integrated an executive education program, PAGAP – Advanced Program in Project Management and Evaluation - at the Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics, which has enabled me to develop multidisciplinary skills and techniques to manage and evaluate projects.
At PRO - architects I was a member of the project management and architectural coordination team of two major projects: Hilton Cape Verde and Praia Design Hotel. I had the opportunity to work together with professionals in the Engineering and Architectural field of recognized international consultancies, institutions and brands, such as Hilton, Quadrante, Bda.
At the moment I am working at PRO architects and just finished a course on REVIT architecture 2014 fundamental. Working in these offices gave me the chance to participate in all steps of a project and interact and coordinate those involved along the process of different scale projects. Now, I am seeking new challenges to continue with my international experience and professional development, and look forward to actively contribute to your organization.
I appreciate the attention given to my application and look forward to discuss this opportunity with you via skype or in person.
I can be reached anytime via email at email@example.com, by cell phone, (+351) 916284751 or by Skype: luisccbleitao.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
