Re: General Laborer (Position ID 544220)

Dear Mr. Doe:

I am writing to submit my application for the General Laborer position at Unilever, as advertised on your website. I recently completed my Certificate II in General Construction and hold a Blue Card and LR license. I am able-bodied and healthy and also own a reliable transportation. My knowledge and qualifications would make me a precious member of the Unilever.

Currently, I am working at William Construction Pvt. Ltd where I am in charge for a diverse range of construction tasks and a little clerical work. I am highly skilled in performing general maintenance work such as painting, minor repairs, changing light bulbs, in addition to other miscellaneous tasks as assigned by supervisor. Besides, I am able to efficiently perform janitorial work such as cleaning equipment and work area.

I have enclosed a copy of my resume for your consideration and will contact you next week to schedule an appropriate time of meeting. Meanwhile, you may contact me on my cell phone at (012) 999-9999. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
