There is something quite daunting about writing a labourer cover letter for the first time. Most of the time, we cannot even pinpoint what it is that has us so scared. After all, it is just a cover letter! Oddly enough, even though there is no actual contact with a prospective employer at this stage, one does get the jitters when writing a cover letter – simply because there is so much at stake.
Success in your first job (or success in attaining one) provides a kick of encouragement that lasts for a pretty long time. If the opposite happens, well, you know where that will go!

Dear Ms. Cole:
I would like to offer my services as a labourer for Rogers Group. Having seen your advertisement for an open position quite thoroughly, I believe that there is a close match between your job description and my talents.
• Unmatched ability to take and follow directions in order to perform support work for construction workers, carpenters and welders
• Proficient in following safety protocols effectively by ensuring that all work processes are in accordance to set rules and regulations
• Deep insight into controlling influx of traffic on construction sites by erecting traffic cones and signs and using hand signals to divert traffic
As an energetic individual who has a demonstrated ability to perform general clean-up duties and operate light power tools such as compacters and vibrators, I will need minimal training. I would like to discuss your needs and my labourer skills in detail for which I will call you next week to set up an interview date. Until then, I can be reached at (000) 888-8888.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
