Dear Ms. Leah Lea,
I am writing to apply for the job opening as a Shop Assistant in your company. Please see the enclosed resume for my references and the details of my experience. I’m sure you will see that I am very qualified to fill the job. I am confident I will be an asset your company.
I have been working as a parts clerk in an auto supply shop for the past three years. My job has me accomplishing a wide variety of tasks every day, from greeting customers and answering phones to driving a forklift and setting up parts displays. I work efficiently and with very little supervison. I have excellent relationships with my customers, who come back to see me time and again when they need help with auto repair. And my track record for safety is spotless.
In high school I completed a vocational program that included some automotive engine repair. I have also been restoring my own vehicles for years – first with my father and brothers when I was just a little guy, and then on cars I bought for myself once I got my license.
I have good work habits. I keep my tools in good shape and my work area tidy. I know how to use a computer to perform basic tasks. I have a clean driving abstract, and I am working towards my commercial driver’s license.
It would be a pleasure to meet with you to discuss my qualifications. You can reach me at (555)-555-5555 days or evenings.
