Dear Mr. Wayne:

It is with great enthusiasm that I am submitting my application for the position of Project Assistant at Parsons Brinckerhoff. Through effective utilization of my qualifications, I can claim with confidence that I will add a much greater value to your company.

Recently I completed a three years contract job as a project assistant at Art’s Way Manufacturing Alorida. I worked as a liaison with the Site Interface Manager and the Project Manager for site project work supporting project functions. Through this experience, I became familiar with all types of possible problem solving incidents in construction projects. Ensuring all documentation meets internal standards, procedures and specifications, I carried out regular project forecasts. My documents were always proven to be transparent and effectively reported always on time.

I have a focus on performing administrative tasks to support the assigned project’s goals and programs, which is directly in-line with the requirements of your project assistant’s position. I am a consistent hard worker which is evident from the list of achievements I have mentioned in my resume.

In order to use of my professional qualifications efficiently to bring great value, I wish to be a part of Parsons Brinckerhoff’s project team. I have enclosed my resume hoping for an opportunity to further discuss my interests in Project Assistant position at Parsons Brinckerhoff. I will follow up with a call next week to see if a meeting can be arranged.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
