Dear Hiring Manager,
I am writing to inquire about the employment opportunity at your firm. I believe that my experience in architectural design, marketing, and visual arts would make me a very strong asset to your practice. My resume specifies my architectural experience and background, which is enclosed for your review and consideration.
My passion and desire to learn about the endless possibilities of architectural and graphic design has opened up avenues of discovery and experience that I had not fathomed prior to my exploration. However, my initial interest in the design field began through experimenting with fashion. I started working independently in a small scale process of adapting and reworking old fabrics into unique garments that each had an individual story. Eventually, midway through high school, these individualized pieces gained traction on social media which lead to a merchandising deal with the XL Records signed band; RATKING. This opportunity further fueled my advancements in expression through design. From there, I decided to apply to Roger Williams University to study Architecture and Visual Arts. I began studying and analyzing how architecture, art, and design can be woven at different scales to create a societal impact grander than the sum of their parts.
Upon graduating from Roger Williams University with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and Minor in Visual Arts, I had hosted, curated, and promoted multiple gallery exhibitions across the Northeast region (from Brooklyn to Montreal) that blended visual arts, design, and music into a montage of different voices coming together for a common purpose: making the world a more interesting place to live within. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Roger Williams University, I was accepted to Rhode Island School of Design, Pratt Institute, and Northeastern University to work on a Master of Architecture. In 2019, I enrolled in Northeastern University’s 2 year track to the Master of Architecture with the intention of elaborately exploring how architecture can benefit societies at a multitude of scalar relationships.
I believe that the most essential method of learning about design’s impact is through hands-on experience. In order to further develop my personal voice and view as a designer, I need to get my feet wet through being an integral part of a team-based process and witness first-hand the methods of bringing ideas into fruition. I am confident in my ability to work collaborative with a team of individuals in problem solving and development of an intervention that will delight society as a whole.
I hope this message receives you well and I look forward to hearing from you.
