The goal of every cover letter is to spark the interest of the prospective employer in the candidate’s profile. The first paragraph of your master electrician cover letter is very crucial in this regard. This is where you get the only chance of grabbing the reader’s attention, convincing them of the relevance among your profile and their job demands and inspiring them to read on.
If you have relevant experience, showcase it. If you don’t, deploy your transferrable skills to the best of your abilities. 80% employers focus on the candidate’s skills rather than educational qualifications; all they need to know is whether or not you can deliver the job duties. You need to convince them of your capabilities with proof, either in form of previous experience, quantified accomplishments or highlighted core competencies.

You will find my resume enclosed.
Throughout my career I have consistently delivered solid results for my employers and their clients by demonstrating safety oriented and cost effective electrical equipment repair and installation skills. Some of my noteworthy professional accomplishments are showcased below for your review:
• Reduced HVAC repair and maintenance cost by 30% per annum through implementation of vigilant and proactive preventive maintenance SOPs
