To Whom it May Concern:
Re: Architectural position

I am an architectural designer with twenty years experience in various projects.  My project experience includes core/shell as well as commercial interiors on a wide range of building types.  I have worked in several well-known architecture and design firms.
I possess technical and computer skills with advanced knowledge of AutoCAD, Revit, Microsoft Office, and Adobe Creative Suite.  An understanding and knowledge of contract administration is also one of my strong points.
My attention to detail and problem-solving skills ensure that every project I work on is done accurately, efficiently, and to the highest possible standard. I am comfortable working as part of a team but also have the ability to take an authoritative role when the situation arises. My verbal communication skills and positive attitude make me an effective communicator with all clients or consultants I work with.
I am excited about the chance of working for your firm. My enclosed resume clearly demonstrates my interest in architecture and how my skills and experiences are compatible with this role.
I look forward to the opportunity of discussing my application with you further about how I can contribute to the ongoing success of your firm.
Yours sincerely,
James Addison
