In the interest of investigating time-critical project management positions within your organization, enclosed is my resume for your review and consideration. I hope after reviewing my extensive project/pipeline construction experience within the power generation industry, as well as my mechanical engineering experience within oil, gas, and petroleum refineries, you feel the need to look no further in fulfilling your project management requirements.

Recent experience includes managing the construction of collection systems, daily operations, and quality control in the extraction of methane gas in 35 landfills located throughout the United States. Additionally, I have supervised the maintenance and repair of more than 700 steam boilers within a military installation, and managed and trained up to 125 team members in pipeline production, installation, and quality control for crude oil transfer.

I look forward to a mutually beneficial meeting with you soon to further discuss career opportunities within your organization, as well as my long-term career goals. Thank you for your time and consideration. If you should require additional information, please feel free to contact me via telephone or email.
