Dear Ms. Hauk,
I am applying for the position of Boilermaker with Zachry Industrial, Inc. After viewing the responsibilities and skills needed in your posting, I believe that I am qualified to fill this position.
I have a Welding Engineering degree and I have completed my apprenticeship program where I gained hands on experience making boilers. I know how to use all of the hand and power tools needed in this profession efficiently and I have the desire and determination to be one of the best in this field.
I know how to read blueprints and how to precisely measure and cut the materials used to the desired measurements. I have experience bending and welding pieces into shape without distorting the materials, which can happen when it shrinks, expands or warps. I can then connect the pieces by bolting or riveting them together. I can also inspect the finished product for defects and make repairs if needed before shipping out.
I have the agility, coordination and the technical skills needed for this job and the ability to ensure they meet environmental standards. I am capable of meeting the physical demands it requires as well, which includes lifting, stooping, bending and working overhead.
I have experience operating forklifts and cranes to move the heavy materials and the finished product around the warehouse. I have included my resume with complete details of my skills and training. I am sure you will agree I have what it takes to be a Boilermaker.
Please call (555)-555-5555 to set up an interview.
