It is time that all of us started taking cover letter writing seriously. Because that’s what it is – serious!
Writing a cover letter means that you are heading towards a great journey – one that may lead you to the great depths of success. If you can manage to impress the hiring manager through your writing, you have a great thing going for you.
Unfortunately, most cover letters are not much to write home about. Dull, irrelevant information can put a damper on how a hiring manager perceives you. It is important to be extremely clear when mentioning your skills and qualifications in a cover letter. If you are not a great communicator, you need to seek help from people who can write a good cover letter. Pick up a few samples and go through them. Do not copy, but emulate the style.
The following cover letter sample can be looked through for reference purposes:
Power Plant Technician Cover Letter Example
October 4, 2017
Mr. Danny Pollock
Human Resource Manager
Springdale Works Inc.
8500 56th Avenue
Maspeth, NY 55002
Dear Mr. Pollock:
I was in the process of looking for a Power Plant Technician position that did my qualifications and experience justice, when I came across your advertisement for one in the Daily Classifieds. I am amazed at the match between what I have to offer and what you require, and would like to build up on this further – please refer to the enclosed resume for details.
My most recent experience as a power plant technician has taught me how to handle efficient installation, maintenance and repair of mechanical, electrical, electronic, and pneumatic equipment, used in the commercial generation of electrical power. With my comprehension and exposure to testing and calibrating machinery such as pressure and temperature transmitters, valve positioners, and electronic and pneumatic controllers, I am positive that your organization will definitely be at the winning end.
Exceptional skills in repairing high pressure vehicles, replacing parts, and refinishing metal components by using special machine shop equipment such as tool grinders and milling machines also makes my candidature as a power plant technician strong.
I am positive that once you have met with me in person, you will also agree that my qualifications for the job are a great match to your expectations. Hoping to place further emphasis on this, I will call you to set an interview time soon. If required, I can be contacted at (000) 333-3333.
