Resume:

Gentlemen,

With this letter and my resume I express my interest in the Plant Engineer position which you have available in Amarillo, Texas. As an accomplished and results oriented project professional with 16 years of experience managing many projects from concept through turnover, I have a wide range of knowledge and experience that will allow me to contribute toward the success of projects for your company. I also have 17 years of previous experience in plant design, maintenance, and construction engineering.

These projects were quite varied in scope for both new and revamped plant facilities. Most involved revised or new processes, and equipment and plant layout. Many involved turnarounds, several involved various plant utilities, and several were environmental projects for waste water treatment, clear air, and solid hazardous wastes.

Managing many projects valued from $1M to $50M and being the Engineering Manager on a $170M project, I have successfully managed projects of varying complexity. This experience has given me the skills to:

Lead multi-functional teams

Develop project concept

Execute value improving practices

Risk management

Manage engineering contractors

Design

Cost and schedule development

Buyouts

Schedule control

Cost control and change order management

Manage construction contractors

Bid evaluation

Scheduling and schedule control

Cost control and change order management

Installation per design

Present projects for funding approval

Present written and verbal project reports

Manage checkout / verification teams

Manage preparation of startup / turnover plan with owner-operator personnel

I am dedicated to a successful project which meets the client’s needs with a safely executed on time and on budget completion. With these skills and this dedication, I can deliver successful projects for your company.

Although your industry may not be related to the oil refining industry of my background, it will not be difficult for me to learn enough about your processes and equipment to be a successful project manager in your industry. Most projects I have managed required me to learn new processes and equipment.

Since I live in Amarillo, TX relocation to Amarillo is not an issue. I am very open to job related travel as required.

Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,

Steven J. O’Donnell
