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.

Re: Electrical Engineer Position n Advertised on Monster
Dear Ms. McConnell:
I read your posting on Monster for an electrical engineer with great interest. This challenging position focused on heavy industrial projects is a perfect match to my qualifications.
Since earning a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering (BSEE), I have worked for the last 5 years as an electrical engineer for XYZ Corporation, a leading U.S. shipbuilder of Navy aircraft carriers and submarines. In this role, I maintain, troubleshoot, upgrade and repair plant electrical equipment. This experience has given me a strong foundation within the heavy industrial manufacturing sector in addition to proven success in:
- Improving preventive-maintenance programs and inventory systems to minimize unscheduled equipment downtime by up to 34%.
- Extending the average life of electronic industrial systems and components by up to 25%.
- Cutting machinery repair and replacement costs by $250K in a single year.
- Troubleshooting circuitry, wiring and other electrical/electromechanical issues and implementing design improvements to prevent future problems.
During my tenure at XYZ Corporation, I developed expertise in an array of cutting-edge engines/motors and plant-wide electrical/control systems, including digital signal processors (DSPs) and programmable logic controllers (PLCs). I am also proficient in using electrical design tools and software such as ETAP, SPEL, SKM Systems Analysis and EasyPower.
I am very interested in being part of your integrated engineering team. Please call me at (555) 555-5555 to set up an interview. Thank you for your time.
