Dear Ms. Tinsley,
I am applying for the job of Electrician Apprentice now available with Parsons Electric Corp.
I have received my associate degree for electricians and now I would like to acquire the hands-on experience that working as an apprentice can provide me with, so I can enhance my career and become a certified electrician. I have the skills needed to perform the duties of an electrician but lack the experience that working under the supervision of a professional can provide.
I am energetic, motivated and have the ability to follow detailed instructions to the letter. I work hard and have the ability to be a great help to the electricians I work under. I am familiar with general work such as drilling holes, setting anchors and using a variety of electrical tools needed on the job. I know how to test wiring and inspect for defects that should be taken care of right away.
I understand how to read blueprints and schematics. I have the ability to comply with building codes to make sure all of the work I do pass inspection. I can read a ruler precisely, cut and run conduit, tubing and the wiring that runs throughout the buildings. I have extensive knowledge of voltage requirements and I know how to make electrical repairs.
I have the education and training needed to be a great electrician, all I need now is the experience and I am positive I can be a great asset to your electrical team.
Please call (555)-555-5555 to set up an interview where we can discuss the apprentice position in more detail.
