Tile Setter Cover Letter Sample

Updated on May 2, 2016

The ecstasy that we feel at finding the right type of job opportunity is often dampened when we sit down to write a cover letter to apply for tile setter position. After all, what can a job seeker write in a cover letter that a prospective employer hasn’t read before? The point is not to write a cover letter that is original in its entirety – the point is to write one that is original in context to the particular applicant.

Let us explain what this means. When you write a tile setter cover letter that is generic, it is perceived as unimportant. But even if you write the same old things but in conjunction to your professional profile, you win big awards – translate that into winning interviews. A cover letter needs to say everything about an individual, leaving a little room for intrigue – it is this intrigue that will kick a hiring manager’s curiosity and entice him to want to meet with you in person.

However, the intrigue part needs to be dealt with carefully. There is certainly no need to create drama in a cover letter. Too much showing off without cause is a surefire way of telling a prospective employer that you don’t need the job. Put some finesse in and write professionally. Here is an example that you can follow:

Mr. Albert Ramirez
Hiring Manager
Tradesmen International
9 Parriott Avenue
Moundsville, WV 12398


Dear Mr. Ramirez:

Creatively planning and implementing tiling designs to suit the individual needs of both commercial and residential buildings is my forte. As a successful Tile Setter, who was an integral part of the team that designed the Robertson Hall Aztec Civilization mural, you will find my work far from ordinary.

Over the previous 4 years, I have worked diligently and tirelessly on both new tiling projects and those requiring remodeling. My expertise lie in shaping and cutting tiles in difficult-to-handle forms and artfully set them on surfaces, by using a variety of hand and power cutting and setting tools. Deep insight into reading and interpreting blueprints to decipher tile layouts and corresponding ability to affix tiles in an aesthetic manner, led to increased demand in acquiring my services specifically by satisfied clients in my present place of work.

In a personal meeting with you, I will be able to articulate my abilities in a more profound manner than is possible on paper. I will be in touch with you to set up a suitable time and date. Until then, please feel free to contact me at (000) 555-1210.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
