Re: Entry Level Employment


To whom it may concern:


I am currently seeking an entry level design position in architecture or the related field, where I can become part of a firm, where I can contribute my ideas and work with others to accomplish everyday tasks in this field.


I have recently graduated with my Bachelor of Architecture from New York Institute of Technology. I have also received my Associate in Applied Science in Architectural Technology from SUNY Delhi.


A highlight from my school projects would be my latest thesis project. Designing a facility for military veterans, that will provide them with transitional housing and services they need, to assist with the transition from military to civilian lifestyle.


Enclosed, please find my resume, including my education and experience. I am available for an interview at your convenience.
