Dear Mr. Whitworth,
In response to your recent ad in Wall Street Journal for an Assistant Estimator, I am applying today for this opportunity with all the experience and skills that you are seeking. I have enclosed my resume for your consideration.
Over the last six years I have worked as an Assistant Estimator at D & C Fence Co and Jerl Machine. I have a degree from Barnard College in Construction Management, as well as five years previous to my current role as a Construction Manager for JD Constructions. This said, I know what it takes to follow through in this role with success. I have an outstanding record working with a variety of different industry professionals, such as: architects, contraction workers, and supervising staff. Most importantly, I know how to analyze and estimate costs for construction projects.
Thanks in advance for your time and consideration. I can be reached at (555)-555-5555.
