I feel my motivation and enthusiasm would be appreciated in your office and I am confident that I would be an asset to your firm.
Due to the economic crisis, I was laid off from Robert P. Madison International in April of 2009. After picking up temporary work with SE Blueprint, in 2011, I was fortunate to be hired as a consultant on the design team of a proposed LEED Platinum historic preservation design for the Oberlin Inn Hotel.
In my last full-time position, I was a drafter for Exacta Land Drafting, a survey company. I am currently working as a consultant for Fieldstone Architecture & Engineering, a firm who specializes in residential architecture. I am looking for a full-time opportunity to re-enter my chosen field of architecture as the economy recovers. Nearing the end of fulfilling my requirements for the Intern Development Program, I am eager to complete the Architect Registration Exam and become a registered architect.
I look forward to hearing from you. I can be reached on my cell phone at: (216) 269-3517, or you can reach me by email at: email@example.com.
