The last time you wrote a cover letter was probably not how you would want to write it this time. Cover letter writing rules keep changing according to what hiring managers want. One day a hiring manager will be perfectly alright with your cover letter hosting information of just your qualifications. The next day, he might want you to put in everything and the kitchen sink as well!
So how does one gauge what needs to be put into a cover letter? Since we cannot keep running after hiring managers to find out exactly what it is that they want, it is best to play safe. Place all important information such as qualifications and accomplishments in a cover letter, so that you can be sure that you have covered all ground. Make sure that all the information that you do provide is of an acceptable nature.

Dear Mr. Omaha:
Assembling mechanical and electromechanical assemblies is an area that I am widely expert in. Possessing over 7 years of experience in performing assembly, integration, factory testing and maintenance on a wide variety of systems, in accordance with appropriate standards and procedures, I am absolutely positive that hiring me as a mechanical technician at Weir Group LLC will be a good decision to make.
With expertise in providing resolutions to technical problems of both moderate and complex natures that may relate to design and construction, you will find my professional profile of great interest. During the time that I have worked as a mechanical technician, I have been diligently coordinating scheduling, fabrication, manufacturing and testing of components. This exposure has led me to effectively and efficiently participate in constructing research and experimental prototype models from mere sketches and oral instruction. Conducting experimental tests on model, compiling and reducing data, and constructing high precision prototypes is all in a day’s work for me.
At this point in time, I am interested in providing your organization with the benefit of my expertise as a mechanical technician. Since I have been in the business for such a long time, starting out my career as an apprentice many years ago, I have learnt much in terms of mechanical processes and how they need to be run and maintained. I will be in touch with you to set up an interview date and time, so that I can articulate this further.
