mechanical engineer

Dear Sir/ Ma’am,

I came across your website when scouting for start-ups in XXX. The concept of the product gripped my mind. I immediately related to the idea corresponding it to the experience of eating food in India, which is a multi-sensory experience. You engage with the sense of sight, experiencing the shape and color of the food. You smell the spices in the food and their aroma. Touch it with your fingers and feel the texture and listen to the sound as you eat it, crunchy, soft or slurps. I related this analogy to your description of how music is experienced. I read about your start-up with curiosity since it combines my passions, namely mechatronics and music.

With the experience that I have gained in my work till now, I see myself a valuable fit for the team. My journey in mechanical engineering has been a diverse route and I have worked on many aspects related to mechanical engineering. I am aware and up-to-date with the electronic support systems, which have become integral with core mechanical design and testing. Since the last three years working as a research assistant at XXX, I have worked intensively with structural vibrations. The fundamental mathematics behind vibrations and control theories has grabbed my attention.

Working in a start-up excites me because of a new development opportunities and everyday challenges involved with implementations. I am motivated by innovation, technical freedom and focused work culture. If you would ask the people that know me, they would describe me as creative, passionate, committed and someone who will get the job done.

I would like to be a part of your team and appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss how my qualifications will be beneficial to your organization’s success. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
