thank you for your attention and i look forward to speaking with you soon.
[ojs1]in the jobs i have researched in the last year, i have determined i am not comfortable classifying myself as a senior level engineer. if you believe this is how i should be presenting myself, then i guess i will accept the title you have given me.
[ojs2]is this the same as saying cost savings or value engineering?
[ojs3]what do you suggest if i do not have contact information for a position? many of the online job openings do not provide this information so suggesting i would be calling a person to set up an interview seems a little challenging. typically i can only get as far as the hr department and they give me the runaround.
