Sample Engineering Technicians Cover Letter

This ENGINEERING TECHNICIANS COVER LETTER is clever and a bit bold in its tone. The applicant mentions his internships with two competitive companies and uses that as leverage. These two competitor companies both expressed an interest in hiring this applicant. Businesses are always looking to gain a competitive advantage and this candidate understands the following: if a companyís competitors have an interest in a candidate then that company needs to take a look at that candidate. In this Engineering Technicians cover letter Mark has leveraged this insight to open a door.

Ms. Burres:

I am submitting my resume in response to the ad posted on jobbankusa.com for Engineering Technicians. I will be graduating from the University of Southern California in May and would like to come in and interview before finals begin.

The last two summers I have interned with two of your competitors, Marvelous Corp. and Wonderful Inc. I enjoyed my experience with both companies and both have expressed an interest in bringing me on full-time when I graduate from USC. While I am interested in working with either of these companies, Sensational Corp. has the best reputation in the business.

Sensational Corp. is the best in the business and I am one of the best at USC. I will be graduating summa cum laude from the Engineering Program. The posting mentioned the need for people who can multi-task. As a senior I have managed to work 25 hours a week, play on the menís lacrosse team, act in a play, and take 18 hours of class. I am constantly juggling multiple tasks and manage to get everything accomplished.

I know you will be coming to the campus in three weeks to interview future graduates. However, I would like to meet with you before you visit the campus. It will not be a waste of your time.

Thank you for your consideration.

All my best,

Mark Worth
