        Seattle-Tacoma International Airport

          This letter is in response to the recent posting for the position of Airfield Crew. I believe I am well qualified for this position and appreciate you taking the time to consider my  application.

            I am currently employed at the Port of Seattle as a Lead Access Controller, although my position is temporary and is based on construction project schedules. Our most recent project was the removal and re-construction of runway 16L-34R at Seattle Tacoma International Airport. It is my job to manage efforts with engineers, inspectors, construction companies and Air Traffic Control in coordination with Airport Operations Managers to insure that federal airport regulations are maintained. This position requires a great deal of on-the-fly decision making in a high pressure, time critical environment. In addition, I am responsible for directing all traffic on the Airport Movement Area (AMA) during this project which requires constant communication and problem solving. This is a large project that has many challenges including interacting with all types of contractors, (ICON, Gary Merlino, Elcon, Omaya, Salinas) to name a few.

            Secondly, my qualifications also make me well suited to a variety of jobs including working with heavy machinery and dealing with Customer Service Related Issues based on my experience as a United Airlines Employee for twenty two years. I originally started out as a Passenger Service agent for Air Wisconsin in 1985 where I held a position of Customer Service Agent, Load Planner and Ramp Agent  where I then went on at Washington Dulles International Airport to begin my career as a Ramp Serviceman for United Airlines. I worked at many stations and gained knowledge of how other stations managed their operations.

            Working at the Port of Seattle and United Airlines has expanded my expertise in many areas,  my qualifications varies from supervisory skills, multitasking, organization, scheduling and dealing with manpower issues and working with heavy machinery,  Working with multicultural environments I feel, I have excellent leadership skills and the ability to learn new skills in a fast pace environment, I am highly motivated individual with and excellent work ethic and the confidence to succeed at any position.

          Thank you for your consideration. Attached is my resume detailing my skills, qualifications, and work history. Also, feel free to contact me at any time should you need any additional information.
