Dear [Mr./Mrs./Ms.] [Hiring Manager’s Surname],
Having followed your company’s impressive growth for years, I was excited to see your listing for the welder position at [Company Name] on [Website]. With more than 9 years of experience welding combined with a welder certification, I’m confident that I would quickly become a contributor to the team if hired, and could even leverage my Associate’s in Business Administration to help more on the commercial side of welding at [Company Name].
As a Journeyman Welder at ADF International, I’ve demonstrated my ability to increase efficiency, reduce cost, and maintain quality. For more than 5 years, I’ve consistently handled complex welding projects, completing them ahead of schedule and under budget by wide margins. Additionally, I’ve helped implement strict safety procedures that have significantly decreased the occurrence of on-site accidents.
During my career, I’ve had the privilege to work with high-performing teams at reputable companies. I’m particularly proud that I’ve had the opportunity to:
- Complete more than 40 large projects each valued at a minimum of $250,000 — 5 of which had budgets exceeding +$1,000,000
- Complete 95% of projects 12 days or more before their deadline, and under budget by $2,500 on average
I simply love to weld, and even enjoy helping junior welders learn the ropes. I’ve trained multiple apprentices with great success in the past few years, and it has been a great experience for all of us. I also keep on top of the latest welding techniques and safety procedures in my free time.
Working for [Company Name] is an exciting opportunity, and I’m thrilled at the prospect of joining your team. I’d be happy to discuss the position and my qualifications with you in more detail. You may reach me by phone at 895 555-555 or via email — firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an interview.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
