I am really interested in the position as Intern Architect at your architectural firm. I am now obtaining my Master of Architecture at Cal Poly Pomona, and was graduated from UC Berkeley with a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture. My academic works have given me skills and understanding to deal with both architectural and social problems. I have a strong training in design strategy and I am sure I would benefit your team with creative ideas. I am good at different drawing media such as poster color, water color and color pencil. Also I am familiar with various softwares like, Rhino, Autocad, Photoshop,Illustrator and Google Sketchup. Therefore, I am confident that I am the ideal candidate for your firm.
After I graduated from UC Berkeley, I worked at LWK & Partners Architects, one of the leading architecture firms in Hong Kong, to work as an intern architectural assistant for months. Apart from the artistic side, I understand the more practical side of architecture when I worked there. I experienced how an architecture firm runs and operates. I learned how to meet and schedule client deadlines, communicate with clients, follow building restrictions, and create official drawings. It was a great experience to witness the progression of so many stunning architectural designs and it gave me a preview of the scope of what architecture really is.
I am a US citizen, but I went to high school in Hong Kong. Therefore I am fluent in English, Cantonese and Mandarin, which is a positive tool for the China Asia trade and business. Besides, I am also a good illustrator and artist, I have won the Merit Award of De Anza College Art Competition and the Merit Award of Chinese Youth Art Competition. Enclosed are some of my works for your reference.
At my University, I have been active as the president and historian of the Hong Kong Student Association. Magnificent outcome is the result of productive “teamwork”, and I am sure my coordination and collaborative experience will be a great benefit for my career.
I am more than happy to present my portfolio and work to you at any time convenient to you. And I hope I can have a chance to meet with you. Please see follow my Resume as for your reference.
Thank you for your time and kind consideration. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
