Dear Ms. Ann Pearson,
I am writing to apply for the position of Welding Inspector at ECS Group of Companies.
I have five years of experience welding on a construction site where I became interested in becoming an inspector. To pursue this goal, I earned an associate degree in welding technology and became CAWI certified. I know how to read blueprints accurately and I studied the structures and properties of metals. My experience includes setting up and using welding machines and I know a variety of welding techniques.
I also studied arc welding and the production of metals and I became familiar with Microsoft Excel, Word, PowerPoint and other computer programs used in this profession. I have the ability to inspect the structures visually to look for defects that could pose a problem such as pits or cracks. I also have the training to perform stress tests to make sure the welded joints will hold up under pressure.
I have excellent communication skills with the ability to relay the results of the inspection to the supervisors in charge in a clear, easy to understand fashion. I also have the ability to keep excellent records of all tests run and inspections conducted.
I pay close attention to details and I have the knowledge and experience to ensure that all work meets the specifications, quality and safety standards set forth by the company and the local, state and federal regulations. I have the physical strength and stamina to perform the duties associated with this position and I am confident that I am the best person for this job.
Please call (555)-555-5555 to set up an interview.
