Dear Ms Pham

Re: Electrical Engineer, Minerals/Mining – Ref FGR299

In response to your advertisement on Seek.com, I believe I am an excellent candidate for the role of Electrical Engineer. With five years experience on complex engineering projects, I have the ability to deliver high-level projects on time and within budget. I thrive on a job well done and would love to join the AshtilMining team.

I have a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering from the University of Western Australia and am a member of Engineers Australia. In my current role at Broadmill Mining I have been lead electrical engineer for several projects, including the Fennell Gas Conservation project in WA which I designed and executed. I have excellent organisational and coordinating skills and enjoy juggling all aspects of a project, from designing, drawing circuitry and cost forecasting, to troubleshooting, conducting quality assurance and reporting.

In my last project I designed and developed equipment during the redevelopment of the Agenome Mine. I planned and designed the power station and generator systems using AutoCAD, organised delivery and installation schedules, supervised the construction and tested all systems to ensure adherence to safety standards. The project took eight months to complete and the systems are working perfectly.

My written and oral communication skills are excellent and I enjoy working as part of a team, as well as liaising with contractors and project stakeholders. I enjoy the company and support of my peers while being able to manage my priorities and work. My day-to-day job involves efficiently managing others, communicating complex data to the technical team and breaking down this information for clients and stakeholders.

Problem-solving and troubleshooting are tasks which I face on a daily basis and am confident at resolving. When there is an issue, as often happens in large-scale projects, I am sure to investigate the issue fully, scope out the best methods to resolve it, probe implications of each method, and communicate the data clearly with all relevant team members.

Most of all, I am a committed professional with the skills and attributes the job requires, and a strong determination to achieve an excellent outcome for my employer. I hope to have the opportunity to discuss this more with you at an interview.

Kind Regards

How to Write a Cover Letter for an Entry Level Position

Cover letters can make or break a job application

By Laura Schneider

Updated November 13, 2017

Whenever you apply for a job, your written application and cover letter will be the first point of contact with a prospective employer. That means that your cover letter should be a polished and professional as possible, so as to make a positive impression. Imagine the letter being read in Human Resources, passed along to the hiring manager and shared with the team you'd like to join. If the letter doesn't put you in the best possible light, it's not doing its job.

Why Is the Cover Letter Important?

Every employer will ask you to send along your resume; the cover letter literally "covers" the resume. It's also a tool for expressing your personality, enthusiasm, and knowledge to your prospective employer. Even if your resume is short, your cover letter can make up for that and earn you an interview.

Cover letters can also provide an employer with information about your basic skills and preparation for the workplace. How literate are you? Do you know how to format and proofread? More importantly, do you take the time to be sure your letter is perfect before sending it off?

Tips for Writing a Cover Letter for an Entry Level Job

  1. Before writing a cover letter, it's helpful to do some research into the company to which you're applying. Why do you want this job at this company (as opposed to any job at any company)? Even if you're secretly willing to accept any decent job at any decent company, it's important to show each prospective employer that you've taken the time to learn about their specific organization.
  1. Balance the letter on the page by adjusting the spacing. Even if you are applying electronically, the employer may print this out to read, so it should look nice.
  2. Choose an appropriate font. Comic book sans is not an option. Best choices include Times New Roman, Arial, or Georgia.
  3. Write in a formal style (unless there is a specific reason for doing otherwise).

Sample Cover Letter: Entry Level Position

Use this sample cover letter when you do not have a contact name to address your application to.

Your street address (line 12)
City, State, zip

Month Day, Year (current date)

ABC Company
Company Street Address
City, State, zip code

SUBJECT: RESUME OF JOHN JONES (in caps)

I read with interest your advertisement for engineering positions at ABC Company. Your company is one of the leaders in the electronics industry, and I am interested in being employed by a company with your background. [This is a good place to add a few words about this unique company; for example: "I was excited to see, in last week's news, that ABC was named one of the top cybersecurity companies in America."]

Enclosed is a copy of my resume that details my academic qualifications and practical experience gained through the cooperative education program. As you can see from my resume, I have a firm foundation in electrical engineering. [This is a good place to add a few words about yourself; for example: "My internship with XYZ company also provided me with opportunities to learn first hand about the importance of cybersecurity, and gave me a good grounding in the nuts and bolts of the field."]

Thank you for taking your time to review my resume. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss how my education, practical skills, and background would qualify me to be a member of the ABC Company. My references are available upon request.

Please contact me at 555-555-5555 or name@email.com to set up a time for an interview. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

(3-4 blank lines)

Your Signature goes here if sending a hard copy. Then 3 blank lines

Notes

Use “Enclosure” at the end if you are submitting your cover letter and resume via hard copy. If you are submitting via email, change this word to “Attachment” instead.
