SENIOR CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGER
Mr. John Smith
1234 E. Main Street
Any Town, US 55555
Dear Mr. Smith:
I am very interested in joining an organization such as Metro-Builders. During my research, I was very excited to learn about the current opening for a Senior Construction Project Manager, and feel my qualifications and your requirements are a good match. For your review, I have attached my resume.
My background in the construction industry spans twenty three years in key positions that include my current role of Senior Construction Project Manager for Sky-High, and early positions as Construction Site Manager with major metropolitan rooted commercial real estate property development firms, as well as numerous well-respected independent subcontracting firms servicing many of the larger organizations.
My accomplished construction project management experience across residential, commercial, industrial and governmental construction is well documented. In my region, I am known for heading some of the most lucrative negotiations that won some of the largest bids to build parks for many of the City’s public school systems, which often entailed rehabilitation initiatives using many of today’s leading materials recycling programs to contain costs and reduce harm to the environment.
The scope of my business management strengths range from project site management, crew supervision, contract and proposal development and bidding processes, budget planning and tracking, OSHA, HazMat, code compliance, reading and interpreting schematics, coordinating building placements.
I am from a long line of Italian immigrants who established their roots with their bare hands and fine craftsmanship of interior and exterior commercial and residential buildings.
In 1995, I made my family proud by earning a degree in business management with a minor in architecture, as well as extensive vocational training in Structural Engineering. Maybe I am more old fashioned than I care to admit — I feel hard work triumphs over credentials.
I truly believe that there isn’t a school out there that could give me the education I learned on the job. But I respect both forms of learning. Both offer unique advantages.
I am ready to bring my experience and credentials to your company as its next senior construction project manager.
If you feel there is a mutual interest, I would welcome the opportunity to meet to discuss how we can help one another.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
