Letter of Introduction

Human Resources Director

           c/o Architecture Firm


Dear Sir or Madam:

Please find my resume, respectfully submitted for your consideration in fulfillment of the position posted on the jobs section of the Archinect web site. 

My design sensibilities are wide and varied. Great architectural work is like a custom made garment, as it should highlight and enhance the human experience, thus beginning and ending with the client’s satisfaction.  I personally prefer modern aesthetics, but have a deep respect and adoration for classical orders and systems as well as a great interest in exploring new building technologies and materials. In the end, my work should strike a natural balance between an effortless and intentional reading.

I am confident that my previous years of professional architectural experience and strong work ethic would be a great value to your organization in assisting with the execution of projects and company goals.  I have excellent people and communication skills. I am perceptive, a quick study, dedicated, also with a proven success record in assignments and responsibilities undertaken. Work samples are available under my profile in PDF format via Please expect to find abridged examples of 3d design work, design development and construction document sets of various projects.

I am capable of working independently as well as with others and would very much like to have the opportunity to bring a motivated and positive attitude to your organization.

Thank you for your time and consideration.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.
