Dear Mr. Watkins,
I am moving to New York City and was very delighted to see the opening at your company for a Pattern Maker that was listed in the New York Times. I have attached my resume for your convenience and to illustrate how I can benefit your company. I have the background and experience that you are seeking and would be a perfect fit for this position.
My education includes a four year apprenticeship with a pattern maker who also hired me on full time in order to help with the business that was coming in. Unfortunately, the business did not stand through the economic turmoil of recent years and I decided to make the choice to move to a larger community where my skills can be put to better use. This is a gain for your company as you would be getting a dedicated and experienced employee.
I know that it takes a team to get a full sample into the pattern and manufacturing aspects of the business. I can look at any item and create a full and complete pattern easily and quickly. For this reason, I know that I would be a great member of your team. I can be reached for an interview at any time by calling (555)-555-5555.
