Dear Mr Jenkins
Re: Senior Mechanic position
I am writing to apply for the role of Senior Mechanic at Luxury Car Garage advertised in the Western Australian Daily News on 1 November 2008.
I have been working in the automotive industry for eight years, including the last two years as a senior mechanic at Michael's Car Garage. I was promoted to this position within two years of starting work with the company by demonstrating my experience with vehicle mechanics and maintaining a record of zero comebacks on cars I had serviced.
Working as Senior Mechanic has required the ability to confidently direct and supervise staff members and oversee the general running of a busy workshop. I have excellent communication skills and have developed superior conflict resolution and staff management skills acting as a mediator between the mechanics and the general manager. I am organised, accustomed to maintaining company records and proficient in all Microsoft Office programs. My position has required superior understanding of vehicle electrical systems, fault diagnostics, and pneumatic and hydraulic diagnostics and repairs.
I would like to be considered for a position at the Luxury Car Garage because of the garage's excellent reputation in the industry for offering invaluable expertise and superior customer service. I believe my work ethic and previous experience would fit in well with your company's ethos.
I look forward to discussing my qualifications and experience with you further.
