Dear Hiring Manager,
I am writing to apply for the position of architect.
As a graduate of University of Brighton UK with significant experience in urban studies and architecture, I bring a strong academic background and commitment to excellence necessary to thrive in this high pressure, creative industry.
As a current architect at CK Architecture in Los Angeles, I am a hard-working member of the team who requires little supervision to complete quality work. I am ready to take the next step in my career. I am a persuasive sales person who will exceed company goals and engage the customer. I recently co-designed benches that will appear at Manhattan Beach, CA. I also co-designed the improvement plan to the landmark hotel Chateau Marmont Hotel and Lounge in West Hollywood, CA, as well as co-designed the proposal plan for Choming Presidential Palace in Shanghai, China. I feel my understanding of urban and neighborhood aesthetics combined with my need to incorporate sustainability while enhancing and improving existing architecture prepare me to make a strong and immediate impact at [Company]. I am an effective communicator and I build long-lasting relationships with clients and colleagues.
Please consider the following in addition to my resume:
Able to participate in proposals and projects of various scales, including master planning, urban design, landscape, architecture, interior layout, graphics, material selection, energy saving, custom detailing, and product specifications in collaboration with multi-disciplinary team efforts, from researching regional site context, developing strategies for sustainable growth, to incorporating consistent design strategies into architecture and interior construction level;
Able to perform free hand sketching, build physical models using digital fabrication software, develop 3D models, prepare presentations, competition documentation, conceptual drawings, schematic design, and construction documentation including general documents, specifications, partition plans, reflected ceiling plans, power and communication plans, furniture plans, elevations, sections, and details using 2D/3D CAD, rendering and layout, including AutoCAD, Architectural Desktop, Rhino3D, Grasshopper, 3D Studio MAX, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Flash, InDesign, and Painter
I am excited about the opportunity to work for your firm. I have enclosed my resume and I thank you for your time and consideration.
