Assistant Engineer

Dear Mr. Johnson —

My goal with my career is to become a full-time Engineer. In the meantime, I've found that being an Assistant to an Engineer can be just as effective in terms of getting me employment and gaining the experience that I need. I have had a previous position that I was able to drive success within.

That's why as an Assistant Engineer I have been able to previously:
Assisted with geographical research, permit research, and ensuring that all CAD dimension were in place.
Assisted with note-taking and ensuring that construction meetings had clear directives at the end of them.
Ensured that all work in progress was being tracked and accounted for so that we experienced very little delays with our work.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible. If you'd like to see a portfolio of my prior work examples, I would be happy to supply that. In addition, if there are letters of recommendation that you'd like to see which I did not include, please request them and I can supply more than five.
