To whom it may concern,

Since I was a child, my father, a design engineer in your department, told me about his job
contributing to designing cars and his love for his job. I have always been interested in what he
does but once I began my education at a university, and took a Computer Aided Drafting class
doing what he does, I truly understood why he loves his job. Im pursuing a Mechanical
Engineering degree directed toward computer aided drafting. I enjoy working on the computer
designing projects more than I thought I would. I can definitely see myself in a career involving
computer aided drafting.

I see myself as a self-motivating person who can produce quality work in a set amount of time. I
can stick to a time line and turn work in on time without last minute rushing around. I have
computer skills with KITIA and NX 9.0, as well as Solid Works. I can learn a new program
quickly and understand what needs to be done for a job.

As you can see, a letter and resume doesnt accurately represent my skills and abilities. I will
follow up with your department in hopes that you will grant me an interview. I look forward to
meeting you and discussing the potential of the future.
