Dear Mr. Hauser,
I’m submitting this letter to express my desire to be considered for the welder position now available within your company. I’m a self-starter who can get the job done correctly the first time even when provided with minimal directions and I’m sure that I can make great contributions to the staff at Helix Energy Solutions Group.
I have an associate’s degree in welding technology from Saint Xavier University and the ability to travel to different job sites when needed to perform welding duties. My experience includes five years of working in this field where I gained experience with heavy production equipment and knowledge of weld symbols.
I know how to work with the different types of metals and have a general knowledge of working with hand tools. My excellent trouble shooting abilities make it possible to identify problems and come up with a solution fast and efficiently. I have good reading and writing skills that provide me with the ability to read instructions, understand blueprints and read diagrams.
My strong mechanical skills and the ability to operate drill presses, bench grinders and sandblasting machines will surely be an asset to your company. I look forward to hearing from you soon. I can be reached at (555)-555-5555 for an interview.
