When writing a cover letter with the aim of acquiring a skilled and supervisory work , there may be several aspects that cannot be overlooked. One of them is your ability to not just work in that capacity but to be able to derive maximum output from other people performing the same duties under your supervision.
This is especially true for construction foreman who is required to perform some construction work duties and oversee a crew of workers. Construction foremen are hired to perform quality control management of construction projects and to ensure that all work is being done as the project protocol dictates. They oversee the crew’s work and provide them with a regular support.
Following is a cover letter sample that shows interest of a construction foreman by emphasizing his skills and capabilities that are needed to perform this job correctly.
