A cover letter is your personal introduction that goes with the resume when you apply for a Construction Estimator position. The cover letter tends to inform the hiring company of your job relevant skills which imply your suitability for the specific position.

A construction estimator’s cover letter should be composed very carefully; though main responsibilities of a construction estimator are pretty much general in nature, however companies vary in their specific demands that go with job descriptions. In such a scenario, it is advisable to craft a separate cover letter for each company you apply at as a construction estimator.

Dear Ms Roberts:

I came across your firm’s job advertisement for a construction estimator last evening and am writing to apply for the same. As a seasoned construction estimator and advisor with eight 8+ years’ experience, I am eager to leverage my skills and expertise to contribute to your bottom line.

The job descriptions you have mentioned in your advertisement call for a motivated, dedicated and experienced cost estimator having the ability to analyze various designs and issue cost estimations accordingly. I am pleased to state that I possess all these skills and have much more to offer NH Builders. Construction is my passion – by joining NH Builders I would not only perform my prescribed duties but also all accompanying tasks that are required and expected from a professional construction estimator. For instance; bidding, securing contracts, getting construction approvals and balancing the budget with matchless dedication and zeal.

As I have strong contacts in the contractor market, therefore, I’ll be able to handle bids precisely. Working in the field for a number of years, I understand and value team work. I have always been a proactive team player and have a capability to deliver its 100% for NH Builders since I am the kind of person who motivates, mobilizes and involves the whole team in a project, until each member of the team starts taking ownership of it!

I am looking forward to discuss this opportunity with you and to enlighten you further about my relevant expertise that could come in handy for NH Builders. Meanwhile, if you have any queries or need any references, feel free to contact me at (222) 444-9999.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
