Demonstrating a match between an employer’s job requirements and your skills is what a cover letter is all about. Self-assessment is the first step in choosing how you will write your cover letter so that it appeals to the employer instantly. If you are writing a cover letter for a technical position such as that of an electromechanical technician, the need for self-assessment grows manifold. In such an instance, you will need to consider what skills, qualifications and values you would like to showcase to a potential employer.
Knowing the employer is as important as self-assessment. Your readiness to work for an organization should be evident in your cover letter. The content of your letter should be able to motivate the employer to call you in for an interview, so it is important to keep an employer’s perspective in mind when you begin constructing your cover letter. Make sure that your letter is original and reader-friendly. The opening should instantly grab the reader’s attention so make sure it is not run of the mill. Your skills as an electromechanical technician should be made obvious in your letter so it is important to have a list of skills already written for reference.

Tifton, GA 27263
Dear Ms. Sundance:
Can your company benefit from the energy of an electromechanical technician who has a bevy of electrical and electromechanical knowledge?
Despite a changing neighborhood that folded many small businesses, I did not become part of the downsizing drama owing to the novel way in which I have worked over the past 12 years.
But wisdom is in knowing when to transfer your skills and knowledge to another venue and this is the main purpose behind applying for an electromechanical technician position at Intelsat.
To help your organization grow, expand and take benefit from my experiences, I offer:
• Extensive knowledge of fabricating and assembling electronic, electrical, mechanical and electromechanical devices
• Well-developed technical acumen aimed at ensuring that all project requirements are met and goals exceeded
• Skills in using precision measuring devices and safe use of power and hand tools
I am positive that once you meet me, you will be able to ascertain my suitability for an electromechanical technician position with your company. Thank you very much for your consideration. I will contact you next week to see if we can arrange a meeting so that we can further discuss your needs and how I might be able to fulfill them.
