Dear Ms. Rader,
I am applying for the Heavy Duty Mechanic position with Chapman Trucking Inc. and my credentials are a close match to the requirements listed in your posting.
I currently work as an assistant mechanic at a construction site where I work directly under the head mechanic. He taught me a lot about the equipment used in construction such as how to make repairs on the hydraulic systems and diesel engines. Some of the equipment I am the most familiar with includes bulldozers, concrete mixers and cranes.
In addition to my hands-on training, I have earned an associate degree that centers around heavy equipment mechanics where I studied industrial technology courses. I currently hold a CDL license, so I am legal to operate the heavy equipment that I work on. This is necessary in order to ensure the equipment is functioning correctly after the repairs are complete.
I am physically fit and able to do the lifting and other physical aspects of this job, including working outside in hot, rainy or cold weather. I am familiar with the protective equipment required on construction sites and I always adhere to the safety rules and regulations.
I have excellent problem solving and communication skills with the ability to locate and fix the problems that occur in an efficient and timely manner. I can work efficiently as a team or independently and I have a reputation of being dependable, well organized and competent.
Please call (555)-555-5555 to set up an interview where we can discuss this position in more detail.
