Dear Mr. Johnson
I have come across your online advertisement that you are recruiting for the position of a Mechanical Designer at Icon Inc. I am very keen to apply for this position as I am confident that my skills and qualifications will make me the perfect candidate. I am familiar with Icon Inc. current product portfolio and believe that with my wealth of experience gained from my current job, I can contribute my knowledge to your company in a positive way.
I have gained a deep understanding of products similar to Icon Inc.’s portfolio as well as a broad knowledge about management issues. I have worked in my current position for four years and was in charge of a five-member design group, which provided design direction on products, parts, and components. We evaluated and analyzed designs and produced reports. Furthermore, we saved the company huge amounts in costly revisions by thorough design reviews that recognized faults in models before production.
My experience in the following skills makes me an ideal candidate for the job:
Proficient at creating detailed mechanical drawings for piece parts and assemblies.
Received consistent recognition as an innovative solutions engineer.
Managed all phases of the design process.
I am certain that I am an ideal candidate for this position and I would appreciate it very much if you would allow me a face to face interview where I could further elucidate my skills and knowledge. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
