Dear Ms. Sellers,
I am writing to apply for the position of Heavy Equipment Mechanic now available with URS Corporation.
I have worked on vehicles as a hobby since I was a teenager, so I pursued a career as a mechanic. I recently completed a diesel technology program where I acquired an associate degree. I also gained experience working on heavy equipment through a trade school where I learned how to diagnose and repair many of the problems that occur regularly with heavy equipment.
My experience includes repairing fuel pumps, brake systems, transmissions, electrical systems and controls. I know how to replace belts, clutches and hoses. I have the ability to change tires, adjust the fluid levels and change the oil and filters when necessary to keep your equipment functioning properly.
I know how to troubleshoot to find difficult problems that can cause a piece of equipment to not function correctly and then find a solution to the problem. I am familiar with filling out maintenance service logs and I have a CDL license, so I can test out the equipment after repairs to ensure they are functioning correctly before releasing.
I have the knowledge and training to work on forklifts, bulldozers, cranes, tractors and similar heavy-duty equipment and the skills to continue learning how to make repairs that I am not familiar with at this time. I can keep your equipment functioning at full capacity to reduce down time and to keep your workers safer on the job. I hope that you will seriously consider me for this position and I look forward to meeting with you soon.
Please call (555)-555-5555 to arrange an interview.
