Sample Rough Carpenter Cover Letter

When writing a rough carpenter cover letter be sure the individual who does the hiring knows your experience as one who can build rough wooden structures, such as concrete forms, scaffolds, tunnel and sewer supports, and temporary frame shelters, according to sketches, blueprints, or oral instructions. All rough carpenter cover letters should specify the applicants' interest, ability, and specialties, if they apply. This will help land the jobs they want.

Mr. Kenneth Hope,
Hiring Manager
Universal American Carpentry
123 Western Avenue
Any City, USA 78956

Dear Mr. Hope:

I'm aware that you're looking for a rough carpenter to join your company. I read about this on JobBankUSA.com. With this cover letter I'm applying for the job and hope you will want to meet me in person so I can show you my portfolio of photos of the work I've done.

I've been part of a team of rough carpenters for over twenty years, but I'm now ready to assume similar work at a new company and I hope it will be yours.

Please call me at 879-678-6543 as your convenience and I'll be glad to come to your office. Thank you ahead of time for reading my cover letter and resume.
