Dear Ms Pham
Re: Electrical Engineer, Minerals/Mining – Ref FGR299
In response to your advertisement on Seek.com, I believe I am an excellent candidate for the role of Electrical Engineer. With five years experience on complex engineering projects, I have the ability to deliver high-level projects on time and within budget. I thrive on a job well done and would love to join the AshtilMining team.
I have a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering from the University of Western Australia and am a member of Engineers Australia. In my current role at Broadmill Mining I have been lead electrical engineer for several projects, including the Fennell Gas Conservation project in WA which I designed and executed. I have excellent organisational and coordinating skills and enjoy juggling all aspects of a project, from designing, drawing circuitry and cost forecasting, to troubleshooting, conducting quality assurance and reporting.
In my last project I designed and developed equipment during the redevelopment of the Agenome Mine. I planned and designed the power station and generator systems using AutoCAD, organised delivery and installation schedules, supervised the construction and tested all systems to ensure adherence to safety standards. The project took eight months to complete and the systems are working perfectly.
My written and oral communication skills are excellent and I enjoy working as part of a team, as well as liaising with contractors and project stakeholders. I enjoy the company and support of my peers while being able to manage my priorities and work. My day-to-day job involves efficiently managing others, communicating complex data to the technical team and breaking down this information for clients and stakeholders.
Problem-solving and troubleshooting are tasks which I face on a daily basis and am confident at resolving. When there is an issue, as often happens in large-scale projects, I am sure to investigate the issue fully, scope out the best methods to resolve it, probe implications of each method, and communicate the data clearly with all relevant team members.
Most of all, I am a committed professional with the skills and attributes the job requires, and a strong determination to achieve an excellent outcome for my employer. I hope to have the opportunity to discuss this more with you at an interview.
