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 email@example.com to arrange a meeting. I look forward to speaking with you!

Cover Letter/Resume Sample for Fresh Electrical/Mechanical Engineering Graduate
20 May 2013
I would like to apply for the role of Graduate Engineer as advertised in the Daily Graphic on March 4th 2013.
I have Mechanical Engineering degree (2.1 Hons) including working with CAD and Solidworks and learning C/C++ programming skills.
I am looking for a role where I can help make a real impact in the business and am ready to make the next step into a career building role. As such I would like to work for an organisation where I can be given the opportunity to expand my knowledge of design and the theoretical knowledge of Lean Manufacturing and apply it to real life situations.
I have previous experience of working in a System on Chip (SoC) environment during a summer internship at an aerospace manufacturer based in Ghana, where I gained a good understanding of System on Chip design and implementation flow.
I am very willing to relocate as I am keen to gain a full-time position working within an Engineering department using the above skills and capabilities.
I am able to hit the ground running and work directly with leading engineers so that I can gain further hands on experience. I am flexible, and adaptable, and able to pick ideas up quickly and take action, under instruction, and meet project objectives and deliverables.
I enclose my CV and am available for interview at your convenience. References are available on request and I very much look forward to hearing from you as appropriate.
