Dear Ms. Booker,
I am applying for the position of Mason available at Valley Construction Company and I have the experience and skills listed in your job posting.
I have three years of experience working as a Mason and I specialize in laying brick. My experience includes building homes and laying walkways and entranceways leading into homes. I understand the process of implementing intricate patterns into the design to make the structure strong, so it will last for a very long time.
I have experience mixing cement by hand, laying concrete and working with the other materials and tools used in this trade such as tape measures, edging tools, levels, jointers, squares and chalk lines. I also have experience preparing surfaces for repairs by cutting or breaking bricks to create a smooth surface to work with when making repairs.
I can read and follow blueprints and floor plans and my experience includes operating equipment such as forklifts, flatbeds, cement trucks and dump trucks. I also have the skills to calculate how much material a job will take and the ability to create an accurate estimate of what it will cost to complete a job.
I am physically fit and able to handle this very physical and demanding job. I also have the ability to work outdoors in the heat and cold to get the job done. I am confident that I am a great match for this position and I hope to meet with you soon.
You can contact me for an interview by calling (123)-921-2356.
