Dear Mr. Collins:

My hardworking nature and a strong attention to detail makes me a good fit for Plumber Apprentice position currently available at Plumbers Galore. I have recently completed my associate’s degree in plumbing and am now utilizing my talents in the plumbing arena.

As indicated in my resume, I have some exposure to the work and the tools that are used in the plumbing trade such as plumbing snakes, augers, drills and saws. Since I worked at a tool shop during school, I am familiar with the carpentry aspect of this work and have hands on experience with hammers, measuring tapes and screwdrivers. Additionally, I am a self-motivated individual with a keen interest in learning the trade which is why you will find me to be absolutely attentive and hardworking during the entire course of the apprenticeship.

I am enclosing my resume with this letter for your review and will call your office next week ask if an interview can be set so that I may discuss my strengths in detail. In the interim, I will be available at (010) 777-7777 if you wish to speak with me.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
