To The Hiring Professional,
I have attached my current resume and a few samples of my work in reference to a position with your company.
A relentless self-starter, I offer architectural knowledge and experience of all design phases, technical skills in current industry applications and an uncompromising conviction to produce optimum work in an efficient manner. Recognized by educational mentors, associates and peers for dedication, meticulous attention to detail, strong work ethic and a keen talent in respect to understanding client expectations and needs, I possess a well-rounded, practical understanding of architectural concepts and goals relative to planning, design, development, documentation and management. These skills are not limited to one area, but are universal in their use and are applicable to many industries where a sharp mind and quick grasp of concepts are expected.
I'm working with my former employer to access all work that I've personally accomplished, however, in an effort to expedite the opportunity with your firm, I've sent what was currently available and can provide you with more materials as they become available.
I welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss my qualifications and strengths as an excellent candidate and how I can best be suited to fit within your organization.
