I am writing to express my interest in the full time intern architect position. My educational background has provided me a strong foundation to transition into the workforce. I have already begun this transition by interning at architecture firms. This combined with my eagerness to learn more about design, make me ideally suited for an internship with your company.
Aside from the intern positions, the majority of my experience has been as a student enrolled in the architecture program at the Pennsylvania State University. I am knowledgeable in a wide variety of programs such as AutoCAD, Adobe Suite, Revit and physical model building. In addition, I completed a semester abroad in Italy. This experience helped me appreciate the richness of different types of architecture. My studies, together with my experience, have taught me an important lesson -a good design is a good design, regardless of its application. In a nutshell, my dual strengths are creative imagination and effective implementation. I thrive on challenges and will spend the time and effort it takes to succeed.
