Letter of Intent:

     I am in search of a company that will basically take this fossil to a new era.  I have been slinging steel and doing site installs for going on 25 years and unfortunately the technology is slowly passing me by.  I have always been the man to get the job done no matter what it takes, with that being said, the foreman is only as good as the crew he commands.  Every one has their own unique skill set so I utilized that to the best of my ability.  Mine being erection and job closeouts and overall site babysitting.  The younger generation are more apt to catch on with the new computer systems being utilized with the various Cellular services being used present day.  I am hoping that I can come into a company that will actually want to hone my skills and my past experiences.  I hope with my experience in the field and my work ethics that you will see me as an asset to your company and allow me a chance to demonstrate that to your company.  I thank you for any consideration that you would give me for this chance.
