Dear Mr. Hamster:

Looking for experienced handymen is not the easiest of jobs and I understand this completely because training as a handyman is quite difficult as well. But I have been working as a handyman for five years with two years of apprenticeship prior to that and I am very well acquainted with the demands of this position.

As detailed in the enclosed resume, I have extensive experience in performing maintenance and repair activities on commercial and private sectors which makes me quite versatile as far as work experience is concerned. A strong understanding of masonry, electrical equipment, mechanical layouts and plumbing, I can work on most projects with great precision and accuracy. Putting in preventive maintenance systems is my specialty as I possess extensive construction and maintenance knowledge. With great knowledge of performing upgrades and renovations, I am a class apart in whatever project I take up.

The key to be a good handyman is to ensure that all projects are taken to fruition and that no work is left undone. As I believe in total precision while working, I ensure the completion of each project according to the specifications laid down and this is my greatest virtue. I am very sure you will be able to derive quite some expertise from my experience and look forward to meeting you in person soon.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
