Sample cover letter for Full Time position at XYZ Engineering Company



Dear Mr. 

I am applying for the position of Design Engineer, as advertised on the University of

Kentucky’s Wildcat CareerLink. With over three years experience in customer service

and a strong educational background in mechanical engineering, I know I could make a

significant contribution in helping XYZ Engineering Company grow its product line and

market share.

As an example of my most recent accomplishments using AutoCAD, I worked as part of

a team to design and implement a portable scoreboard for a rowing competition using

GPS technology. The scoreboard will provide real-time information on distance, place

and time during the American Society of Civil Engineers concrete canoe competition.

This will increase processing of the results by 25%. As a graduate teaching assistant, I

have developed my teaching, communication, and public speaking skills. Having made

numerous technical presentations to upper management during my internship at Trane, I

am confident that I can get management’s buy-in for the budget to develop new products.

The enclosed resume summarizes the full range of my skills and qualifications. I would

appreciate the opportunity for a personal interview to discuss this position and my

qualifications in more detail.I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for your consideration.
