I am writing to apply for a job as an Architect- Interior Designer.
I am a qualified interior designer in Greece since March 1998, having successfully completed the degree in Interior Design from the Technical School of Athens, followed by the work experience in architectural offices in Greece. I joined the Architecture School of the Polytechnic University of Crete and I completed my studies in 2012.
After my graduation, I had the opportunity to work as a freelance and at the same time to collaborate with architectural offices in Greece, where I was responsible for the design of the interior. This experience helped me to gain important familiarity on approaching projects of different scale, starting with housing to retail and interior design. During this period my responsibilities were including designing, organising meetings with clients, dealing with contractors, local authorities and site visiting.
During the course of Architecture, I gained valuable knowledge of the different sectors influencing the evolution and completion of architectural projects.  Moreover, I have increasingly developed a deep interest in the design and the way to approach the main contemporary issues to provide good quality exterior and interior environments.
I would describe myself as a very ambitious and creative individual with a passion for architecture and interior design. In addition, I am keen on learning, flexible and able to work well under pressure. Having worked and collaborated with architectural offices, I am fully aware of the level of responsibility and hard work that is required. I am responsible, organized and I can easily adapt to various working environments as a team member or individually. Furthermore, I strive to achieve my full potential at all times and I believe that working within your company would allow me to use these qualities to their full potential.
I hope that, in consideration of my CV, you will be persuaded of my potential to perform well within your company and of my ability to make a real contribution as a member of your firm. At last, I would like to ask if your practice accepts people for a short period of time, in order to test their abilities. And as far as I am concerned, I will be at your disposal for a more permanent cooperation. I look forward to hearing from you at your own convenience.
