Field Engineer Cover Letter

Field Engineers, also known as Field Service Engineers, are technicians who troubleshoot problems out in the field or at manufacturing sites. They may submit lab tests, build lab reports, create calculations and computerized simulations for various engineering jobs.

A good Field Engineer cover letter should highlight at least some of the following skills and qualifications:

  • Experience with administrative procedures, planning, documentation, and reporting
  • Ability to follow guidelines in support of field operations
  • Experience with engineering, material management, and subcontractor coordination
  • Record of performing work efficiently, on time, and in compliance with contracts
  • A bachelor’s or associates degree in engineering

The cover letter below is a good example of how an aspiring Field Engineer can demonstrate these skills and traits in an application.
