Assemblers, also referred to as fabricators, work in various industries and are responsible for putting together parts and products. They might work in assembly lines and install large prefabricated parts for automobiles, aircraft or large appliances, or they might work in smaller workshops putting together smaller parts for computers, electronic devices, toys or small appliances. Assemblers might also assemble furniture, engines or mechanical devices. They might follow drawings, schematics or blueprints, depending on the project they are involved with. An Assembler should be familiar with operating both hand tools and larger industrial production machines, including robotic and computer programmable devices. In many cases, Assemblers must conduct quality control checks to ensure that parts and products have been assembled correctly and meet designated standards and codes.
Below, we have provided a list of common skills and abilities that are helpful to mention in an Assembler cover letter:
- Ability to read blueprints and schematics
