Please consider my resume for the Store Design Coordinator position with your Urban Outfitters store
design team, which I found posted on Craigslist.com.
I am interested in working for your company because it involves the area of my expertise. Also it would
be a great opportunity for a recent Bachelor of Architecture graduate to gain knowledge and experience
especially in a unique and creative atmosphere.
As my resume indicates, I have previously held positions which have helped me gain diversified work
experiences and skills. I am accustomed to working under tight deadlines and handling multi-task
projects. I’m especially known for possessing excellent people skills with dedication to providing quality
service. In addition I have a vast knowledge of design, structure, zoning and building codes.
I believe my experience as an Architectural Designer will be of interest to you. For your review, I have
attached work samples along with my current qualifications. If you have any questions or desire further
information, I may be reached by phone at 267-902-1134 or by email at email@example.com. Thank you
