Dear Ms. Adams:

I applied for the position of a Press Operator at Uwrite Printers three years ago but was told that there wasn’t a vacancy just yet. Having seen your advertisement in the Daily Telegraph, I am assuming that a position has been made vacant and I would now like to reiterate my interest in it. With almost a decade of adjusting inks, mounting rolls and running press folders, I am well qualified to work for you.

The advent of technology, especially in the printing business, has made a lot of things obsolete; what it hasn’t made obsolete is experience and the skills acquired from it. I have had the good luck of being able to go hand in hand with technology over the years and I am well versed with many printing activities of the modern times such as ink and water control along with a great knowledge of operating and maintaining printing equipment. Thriving in an atmosphere that is deadline oriented, I ensure that I audit both equipment and materials prior to a printing job in order to remain in accordance with timelines and quality.

If you need someone who has large scale printing experience and can work on a tight schedule without compromising on quality, I am your candidate. I would be happy to oblige if you need a physical demonstration of my abilities and would welcome a chance to speak with you personally. Thank you for the courtesy extended in reviewing my application.
