Dear Ms. Guerra,
I am applying for the Lighting Designer position available with Mimar Architect, Inc.
I have a bachelor’s degree in architectural lighting and I have a great understanding of lighting concepts. To gain experience in this field, I entered an internship program that gave me the opportunity to work side by side with professional designers. After completing my internship, I became an assistant designer with the same company. This hands-on experience has helped me to gain valuable experience that makes me the best candidate for this position.
I have extensive computer knowledge with experience using MS Office applications, 3-D modeling, publishing software and AutoCAD. I will use the information provided by clients to create 3D images of the designs to submit for approval. Once approved, I have the skills to put the plan in action.
I have the ability to handle several projects simultaneously while meeting tight deadlines. I am very creative with the ability to produce innovated designs that are fully functional and practical. I am self-motivated with the ability to work independently but I can also work efficiently in a team setting. I have excellent people skills and I always conduct myself in a friendly, professional manner even when working under stressful conditions.
I have included my portfolio and references with my resume and I look forward to meeting with you in person to talk about this position in more detail. I am positive that I can be a great asset to your company.
You can reach me to arrange an interview by calling (555)-555-5555.
