The reason I am interested in transitioning to your office is to expand and expose myself to more diverse set of challenges, and to meet more professional architects which can be good guidance for my future profession in United States. Your firm would be a wise choice of my career and I believe this match could develop into a long-term synergistic relationship.

 

Also interested in architectural representation in VR and AR technology. With one year of three

courses studying on the VR and AR techniques, I have equipped the skill of dynamic and interactive architectural representation based on Oculars or Android platform for cell phone with Google Cardboards.

 

My future goal is to grow up to be a mature and registered architect, and will actively prepare for the Architect Registration Examination.

 

 

I am prepared to become an immediate and enthusiastic contributor to your team.

 

I look forward to the opportunity of meeting with you to review my portfolio and my digital interactive projects, discussing how my skills and experiences would be a strong fit for your firm. 

 

Thank you for your time and consideration.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

Xixiao Zhang
