Dear Ms. Mary White,
I am writing to apply for the Apprentice Electrician position with Integrated Electrical Services.
My career goal is to be a certified electrician and I know that this position will help me accomplish this goal. I have started preparing for this career by completing a basic computer class and a semester of albegra in college. I have earned my Associates degree and I am currently working on my Bachelors.
I am physically fit and able to perform the duties required by this position, which I understand includes hours of standing, walking and stooping. I also have excellent vision and depth perception so I can use ladders and I have excellent hand/eye coordination. I can also work in small spaces or up high and I understand that this position requires sometimes working in bad weather.
I pay close attention to detail which I know is vital when working with electricity and I know how to use power tools and measure accurately. I can pull, run, bend and cut wire and I know how to trace down a short in wiring along with locating and fixing other problems.
I work well in a team setting and I have the type of personality that makes it easy to get along with others including clients. I also have the ability to work alone and follow directions to the letter to complete any job assigned to me.
You can reach me by calling (555)-555-5555 to arrange for an interview to discuss my qualifications. I hope to hear from you soon.
