To H. R. Officer,

I am interested in your advertised Electrical Engineer Position. My background will fit in your stated job responsibilities and requirements, as I have fulfilled project management and electrical distribution design disciplines in my past jobs, working with numerous architects, civil and mechanical engineers. I have professional knowledge of the codes and the design constraints. If given the opportunity to interview, I would like to highlight a few of my valuable assets that I would bring to this position. As my resume reflects, my skill and experience includes plenty of planning for power distribution systems with various institutional facilities of the State Agencies. Working over 18 years in the past with teams of architects and engineers has provided me with a considerable expertise and insight to explore the possibilities or opportunities with different properties and buildings in particular. The electrical system design, installation and inspection, as well as dealing with the construction contracting issues have become my forte. Medium Voltage and below-600 V building distribution systems have been my expertise, and I have been proficient in working with AUTOCAD, Visio, Excel, Power Point, WORD, and MATLAB software and applications. In addition, I will bring excellent communication and interpersonal skills to the position, which works well with all levels of management and staff. Sincerely,

Steve Ghadiri, M.S., MBA, P.E.
