Dear Ms. Rita Ash,
I am seeking a position as an assistant engineer with your company. I saw that you had posted an open position, and I feel it would be a great fit for my skills. After reviewing your advertisement, I see that I meet the necessary qualifications.
I earned my Bachelors in Engineering from Spaulding University, and then went on to intern for a leading company in the field. After completing my internship, I was hired for a full-time position which I have worked for the last two years. Although I enjoy my current position, circumstances are causing me to move into your area. Once I saw you were looking to hire an assistant engineer, I knew I needed to apply for your company.
Skills I can bring to this position include:
•Experienced with Microsoft office programs and AutoCAD
•Strong writing and communication skills
•Great sense of organization
•Working well within a team
•Ability to make decisions within the parameters of a project
I have long been passionate about engineering, and I am always looking for new solutions to problems. Because your company is known to lead the pack when it comes to innovation, I feel that makes me an even better fit for this position. Above all else, I am willing to start in an entry-level position and work hard to prove myself. I know it won’t take long before you see I am able to do everything you need from an assistant engineer.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and I look forward to the opportunity to discuss this position with you further.
