L.J. WALLACE - AutoCAD Drafter – 8/1/2018


Dear Administrator,

Please accept this letter as an expressed interest in working with your company.

I have been in the AutoCAD field for 22 years (1996) now; and I’ve had an interest in the architectural and drafting field for 30 years (1988). I know the AutoCAD programs of Rel. 14, 2000, 2000i, 2002, 2004, 2008, and 2010 (CURRENTLY), StudioVIZ, AutoCAD Raster design and Architectural desktop; as well as, PageMaker, Microsoft Word, RUMBA and Excel. I've had steady experience in the field for 9 years after graduating (2002) with honors from New England Tech.

I am very well organized, persistent, self-motivated and able to think clearly under pressure. I am reliable and punctual. I am a straight shooter; meaning if I don’t know how something is to work, then I will tell you. Which goes in hand in hand with being a quick learner.

My knowledge of AutoCAD extends to all areas of formatting, line types, dimension and script editing and placement, line weights, shortcuts of commands, plot/plat layouts, etc. Cutting and pasting blocks into diagrams; corrections (to/on) red lined pre-existing files; updating files to ANSI standards as well as customization;

My knowledge of the architectural engineering aspect includes (but is not limited to): Common construction documents, systems in building (Blueprint conception in areas of foundation, various wall structures, kitchen and bathroom layouts, roofing systems, HVAC systems, plumbing layouts, etc.) layouts.

As well as; designing logical irrigation systems, restructuring and assessing topographies, building structure materials and strengths there of, and other aspects of building and construction.

My knowledge of the civil engineering aspect includes (but is not limited to): Surveying, taking ties and recording distances, using 200’ sheets to reduplicate areas for drawing purposes. Scaling and re-scaling maps (CADmap familiarity). Also creating detailed notes and specs to drawings. Implementing G.I.S. systems and co-ordinates.

I am very interested in this position. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss how I might best meet your needs. I can be reached at 301-***-**** to arrange an interview.

Thank you for your consideration.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.


Larry Jay Wallace

*Note: this resume is focused on my engineering experience. Gaps between career employment have been filled by a multitude of non-career jobs and career focused studies. Cad is an ever-changing field; therefore new technology must always be learned. Currently I have been experimenting with AutoCAD 2016.
