Re: Mechanical Engineer Position (Ref. Code: 12345), advertised on Monster.com

Dear Mr. Smith:

Your job description for a mechanical engineer perfectly matches my qualifications, and I am very interested in the opportunity.

I have enjoyed a progressively responsible engineering career with ABC Manufacturing Co., and participated in the engineering of three major car model changes. I am experienced in all phases of new vehicle model development and implementation, from conception to production stages. Most recently, I have:

  • Contributed to major model changes for the 2008 Carname, 2007 Carname and 2006 Carname;
  • Developed process plans and layouts for seven additional car models;
  • Reduced ergonomic impact on production team members by designing new assist lift systems;
  • Helped create estimation and calculation tool for project budgets, greatly improving negotiating power with installation contractors; and
  • Built rapport with overseas colleagues, often traveling to Japan for production consultations.

In addition, I have served as lead engineer in establishing standards that have reduced costs, enhanced efficiency, improved production methods and simplified equipment and part needs.

Mr. Smith, I have received repeated commendations from ABC Manufacturing Co. for my work quality, revenue contributions, and commitment to achieving company goals, and I know I would be a valuable asset to your North American Division. Please feel free to call me at 555-555-5555 or send an email to rmatthews@somedomain.com to arrange a meeting. I look forward to speaking with you!

Dear Ms. Ulrich

It is with great pleasure I submit my resume for the Energy Engineer position with your organisation. After reading your online post for the opening I knew this was my opportunity to expand my engineering experiences with a growing company.

I recently completed all the examinations for my engineering license receiving high honours across the board. My history of the last few years include a Bachelor’s in Systems Engineering and an internship with a private engineering company followed by three years as a junior engineer. To say I have developed a range of talents as an energy engineer would be an understatement. I assisted in many design projects reducing costs and energy consumption for public and commercial properties. I have learned the most effective ways to evaluate current energy systems for improvement and updating. I know how to prepare technical reports and have been involved in negotiation agreements. Researching and developing cost estimates have become second nature. I have the analytical organisational and critical faculties for keeping a project and team on point. Even during those tight deadlines and unexpected stressful conditions.

I am confident that my experiences will make me a great Energy Engineer. I hope to meet with you for an interview.

Best Regards

Josephine McGough
