Dear Ms. Stanton,
I am submitting my resume for the position of Plumber. With vocational certification as well as more than 3 years of experience both as an apprentice and as a practicing Plumber, I am confident in the skills I can bring to Kern County Plumbing.
My professional experience includes analyzing architectural blueprints, installing plumbing systems in both commercial and residential buildings and operating a wide variety of both traditional and cutting-edge tools. I have successfully assessed, repaired and maintained the plumbing systems of dozens of businesses and homes, and over the course of my experience I have learned that great Plumbers must have a passion for excellent customer service as well as thorough technical knowledge.
The following are some highlights of my experience:
Completed a vocational program at Bakersfield College
Completed an apprenticeship program at the United Association of Bakersfield
Installed essential components of central plumbing systems for a number of local businesses and residents
Successfully maintained those systems over a 2-year period
Repaired plumbing systems for individuals and businesses on an on-call basis
Installed plumbing fixtures for individuals and businesses as needed
Learned about new tools, technologies and techniques in order to keep my knowledge as current as possible
I am grateful for the opportunity to bring my commitment to customer service, continuing education and, of course, excellent plumbing to Kern County Plumbing.
Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to speaking with you further about this position.
All the best,
