Dear Mr. Nordberg,
I am enclosing my resume and some references in response to your recent advertisement for a Maintenance Technician in the XYZ newspaper. I can assemble, maintain and upkeep all electrical and pneumatic components. I have the knowledge of drawings and electrical schematics.
I have an outstanding record with previous employers, as you can see from my attached resume, and I am ready to begin employment immediately. I believe I have the skill set and the experience you are looking for.
I would welcome meeting you in person to talk over this position and to show you what I can bring to the company.
