Marine Surveyor Cover Letter Sample

Updated February 12, 2018

Even if you have learnt all there is to be learned in Cover Letter Writing 101, there is very little chance that it will work every time you write one.

Writing a Marine Surveyor cover letter may seem like it is not a big deal, but in actuality, it involves a lot. You have to make sure that your cover letter is exactly as the hiring manager expects it to be, which is not easy.

Using phrases that may seem amazing, but are in actuality annoying for a hiring manager is a complete no. Do not make big assumptions about your value that recruiting authorities may not appreciate.

Instead, try to write content that suits your individual personality, and does not elicit information in a cocky manner.

Flattery in a cover letter will not get you anywhere, so ditch it.

If you have a witty side to your writing, keep it curbed, so that you do not accidentally end up annoying the hiring manager.

Here is a cover letter sample to provide you with ideas on what needs to go into one:

Mr. Gerry Long
Human Resource Manager
West Virginia Marine Resources Commission
9883 Ontario Avenue
Wheeling, WV26005


Dear Mr. Long:

I am writing to apply for Marine Surveyor position, as advertised in

My professional experience as a marine surveyor is solid and well-rounded, and includes 7 years of exposure to handling assessments of marine vessels, such as ships, boats, tankers, submarines, and dredges. As a result of this experience, I am now considered a pro where determining conditions of hulls, machinery, equipment, and equipage is concerned, a quality that I am sure you will appreciate immensely.

Beyond enthusiasm for the position, I offer all the essential elements required in providing repair and maintenance suggestions, checking for compliance management, and providing recommendations for design plans. Preparing reports on assessments, and ensuring that the information in them is accurate and spot on with the requirements of the management is just one of my strong points.

Confident that I have much to offer to your organization in terms of professionalism, experience, and skills, I urge you to go through the accompanying resume, which does not only include information of past experiences, but accomplishments as well, which I have achieved over the years.

At the end of the week, I will contact you so that we can set up a mutually convenient time to meet in person. If you need to reach me in the interim, please call me.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
