Dear Sir,/ Mam

Hello, my name is Derk Ogden. I have been involved in many levels of the construction industry for the past 25 years. During that time I have owned & run my own successful business and for the last 12 years I have been a construction superintendent.

I would very much like the opportunity to be involved with a company that is looking for a common sense individual who doesnt mind a good challenge and hard work.

As a project superintendent, I can offer you a quality person who can multi-task, problem solve with superb sequencing skills and work well with others to keep things running in a smooth forward motion. I have supervised and built numerous structures during my years in the construction industry. I have experience in commercial, residential and multi-family construction projects with budgets ranging from $200,000 to $40 million.

It is hard to determine a persons character from a simple letter and resume, therefore I would very much like to have a chance to talk to you about a possible position as a job superintendent with your company. If you currently have a position or will have in the near future I would greatly appreciate hearing from you to discuss the possibilities, you may contact me at 785-423-2505.

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter, please take another minute to glance over my resume and references.

Again, Thank You

Derk Ogden
