Sample Machine Tender Cover Letter

A machine tender cover letter is the best way for a prospective employee to display his expertise with technical equipment. Be sure to let the hiring manager know what you can do, such as tending grinding machines that remove excess material from the surface of machined products or presses that extrude metal through a die to form wire. The more specific you are to the focus of the company you are targeting, the more likely it is that you'll get the job. Therefore, all machine tender cover letters should list or comment on the machines that best reflect the worker's previous experience or expertise.

Dear Mr. Embrey:

According to a posting I read on JobBankUSA.com, you're currently in the market for a machine tender. I would like to fill that position. I have worked with other machine tenders compatibly for over ten years at three different companies in the cities where I lived. My resume has all the details but I wanted to mention in this cover letter that my specialty is tending grinding machines that remove excess material from the surface of machined products-something that seems just right for the focus of your company.

Machine tenders are important to the quality of the final product so I would be proud to come onboard in one of these positions.

Please call me at 222-222-2222 anytime of the day to arrange an appointment that best fits your schedule if you'd like to meet in person. I hope we can meet soon and that you'll find me the perfect candidate for the machine tender opening at Epson.
