Dear Ms. Cassell,
I am very interested in the Chief Engineer position now available with Harris Corporation and I am sure that I am the best candidate for this job.
I have three years of experience working as an engineer during which time I often assisted the chief with his duties to help keep the department organized and running smoothly. This has helped me to gain the hands-on experience needed to fill this position and lead your engineering department.
Some of the duties I performed include assisting with the development and coordination of company projects. I monitored each project to make sure they were being completed in a timely and efficient manner in order to meet deadlines while still providing quality work. I also kept an eye on the budget to ensure all projects were staying within the allotted financial plan.
My experience includes developing and initiating complex designs, creating models and testing designs for functionality and safety. I have the knowledge to consider environmental issues into the designs and the development process to make sure all engineering designs comply with the state, federal and corporate regulations and laws.
I have experience dealing with the administrative side of being an engineer such as preparing and recording reports, organizing files and analyzing data. I also have the ability to learn all of your procedures and policies in a timely manner and to ensure the engineering department abides by all safety rules and regulations at all times.
You can reach me by calling (555)-555-5555 and I look forward to meeting with you soon.
