Dear Mr Adams
Re: Senior Architect position, REF951
Please accept my application for the position of Project Architect as advertised on SEEK on 5 June 2009.
I am a dynamic and ambitious architect with five years experience in various projects and constructions on luxury houses, home units, industrial and commercial buildings, urban design, heritage and conservation, and defence-listed sites. Since graduating from the University of Western Australia with a Master’s degree in Architecture, I have worked in several well-known architecture and design companies.
I possess impeccable technical and computer skills with advanced knowledge of Auto CAD, Microsoft Office, Adobe and other graphics communication programs. In previous jobs I have often been called upon to train juniors and other employees in various computer software. An excellent working knowledge of contracts administration is also one of my strong points.
My attention to detail and excellent problem-solving skills ensure that every project I work on is done accurately 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 I work with.
I am excited about the chance of working for Black, Smith & Partners as I have admired the company since I first started studying Environmental Design. My enclosed resume clearly demonstrates my interest in sustainability and the way in which my skills and experiences are compatible with this role.
I look forward to the opportunity of discussing my application with you further and how I can significantly contribute to the ongoing success of your company.
