"If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough" Albert Einstein

When I moved to Indiana, I immediately applied for engineering licensing through reciprocity and was denied due to a technicality with the registration laws. The Ohio Board gave me four years of credit for five years of education tine and four years of work experience across seven years of time. The overlapping time and work experience in sitting for the engineers exam amounted to the requisite eight total calendar and physical years of the necessary experience when I took the Ohio examination and would need to take the Indiana exam Indiana Board determined that the rules were not met and that I was 34 days short of the required experience. After over 23 years between examinations, I did take the Indiana Board exam and later found out that I had scored second highest on the professional exam. If you want an individual with that tenacity and attention for detail, then you should be talking to me sooner rather than later.

This letter is to express my interest in the Engineer position listed on your website. Based on my skills in site development and hydraulics engineering, I am confident that I would be a great addition to your team. Highway design has been an integral part of my employment history, even though it has not been a part of my job title.

My resume highlights my ability/knowledge/expertise in civil engineering is electronically enclosed. During my time at my past employers here in Indianapolis, I was able to generate construction plans, design reports, and reviews in civil engineering projects throughout the State of Indiana.

I am excited about the Engineer position and the ability to aid in your corporate success. Thank you in advance for your time. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I would appreciate the opportunity to review my qualifications in more detail.
