Dear Ms. Cartwright:
As an accomplished electrical engineer, my expertise is in calculating power and lighting system needs for new and existing buildings to meet New York state codes. I would like to bring my collective experience and success to the electrical engineer position you are currently advertising, specifically contributing the following to Halon Energy, Inc.:
- Knowledge of electrical and engineering codes, including New York state, NEC, IBC, and NFPA 72.
- Aptitude for collaborating with mechanical engineers and architects to design, develop, and implement MEP projects from conception to completion.
- LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credential with experience retrofitting historic buildings with photovoltaic systems.
During my internship with Hazard Engineering, I assisted senior electricians in upgrading new and existing structures with updated electrical systems to withstand proposed New York state building codes, the focus being on renewable energy. Then, as an electrical engineer with Hazard Engineering, while leading the design of electrical systems for a new cabin model, I collaborated with architects, medical personnel, historians, and engineers to develop minimally invasive installation procedures for health facilities and historic buildings. The resulting protocols allowed for a 25% reduction in energy use with a minimal release of toxins and particulates while also mitigating damage to historic buildings. As your electrical engineer position requires expertise similar to mine, I believe I would serve Halon Energy, Inc. well in this role.
I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to further discuss my electrical engineering experience at your earliest convenience. I may be reached at 555.555.5555 or via email at email@example.com. Thank you for your time and consideration.
