Dear Ms. Priest,
I am interested in the Mining Engineer position that I found listed online yesterday.
I have held a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mining for over ten years and have worked in the industry since completing my degree. I am fully versed in all aspects of the position you outlined in your listing and feel I would be a perfect fit for your company. As required, I have full knowledge of mining permitting and equipment operation and am able to lead a team effectively. I am also comfortable performing evaluations on employees and recruiting new employees when needed.
My communication skills are top notch and I would not have a problem working with contractors, vendors and other engineers working on your projects. This includes negotiations to get the best price possible and can also bring in some vendors I have dealt with in the past who may be able to offer a better deal than current vendors.
The market for mining is ever changing and for this reason I always keep up with the latest in technologies and the cost of replacing old equipment. It is my thought that when the equipment is kept up to date then the projects can run smoother and more money can be made for the company which is the bottom line.
I would appreciate the opportunity to sit down and discuss your needs in person. You can contact me at any time by calling my home (555)-555-5555 or cell phone (555)-555-5555. I look forward to hearing from you.
