Dear Sir or Madam:

I am supplying a copy of my resume for your viewing, as I wish to be

considered for an employment opportunity with your company, in your open

Quality Assurance Specialist position. I hold an Associate of Applied

Science Degree in the Mechanical Engineering Drafting program from South

Central College; Faribault, MN. I also am currently pursuing a degree in

IT-Networking from South Central College; North Mankato, MN.

I have experience/education with all Microsoft Office products; several

CAD programs (AutoCAD thru version 2008, Medusa R12, IGI2100) Solidworks

include setting up and calibrating gauging: Pistol grips, bore gauges,

Micrometers, Calipers, as well as some limited exposure to working on a

CMM. I also conducted process audits, work in MRB with Baan dealing with

various non conforming materials from various departments. As well as

assisting with some document control duties.

Before returning to school to pursue my Mechanical Drafting education I

held a position at a thin film manufacturer in their Quality department, I

tested the various properties of the substrate (raw glass) as well as the

properties of the film we applied, I also spent about half of my time

preparing sales samples. Tested coated products for optical properties to

ensure product meets specification, skilled at operation of relevant

laboratory lab equipment and able to detect malfunctions (front surface

assurance activities within the team; format, and publish quality reports

for product orders, conduct statistical process control regarding

identified quality attributes, proficient in Symix manufacturing system,

assist in corrective action/ customer complaint investigations, prepare and

evaluate special sales samples for prospective customers.

I also assisted with internal audits, worked in a clean room environment,

cross trained in all areas of production. I trained inspectors and filled

in for supervisor when necessary.

I am a very hard worker who puts my best effort forward, I am a team

player who is self motivated, flexible and detail orientated. In previous

positions, I have learned great communication skills through working with a

large variety of people.

Please review my resume at your earliest convenience. I look forward to
