Dear Mr. Shutter,
I found your advertisement for the mechanical engineer position on Careerbuilder.com and am writing to apply. I am highly analytical, detail-oriented and have superior technical and scientific abilities. In addition to four years of experience working as a mechanical engineer, I have a Master’s degree in the discipline.
My position working as a mechanical engineer often includes troubleshooting and analyzing problems to find mechanical or thermal device solutions. Using computer-aided design methods, I design thermal or mechanical devices as needed. Of course, developed devices then require testing of the prototypes which I carry out in the laboratory to ensure they function properly.
I have great technical writing skills and am able to author manuals, specifications and schematics for thermal and mechanical devices I design and develop. I enjoy working as a mechanical engineer because I find it gratifying to be able to solve complex problems. I have excellent trouble-shooting, critical-thinking and problem solving skills which I put to good use.
I believe I would make a good choice for the mechanical engineer position at your company. I would like to schedule an interview to learn more about the position. I have attached my resume and can be reached by phone anytime.
