Dear Ms. Covington:

I am a mechanical engineer with expertise in increasing the efficiency of design and production operations. I would like to bring my collective experience and success to the mechanical engineer position you are currently advertising, specifically contributing the following to Trarn, Inc.:

  • Expertise in AutoCAD/CADD; proficiency in generating extensive layouts, including shop drawings for use in production activities and submittal drawings for client review.
  • Ability to develop designs from committee concepts and review company designs for accuracy prior to prototype production.
  • Aptitude for participating in mechanical, electronic, and software design efforts, contributing to production operations in all areas.

As an intern at Harper Industries, I developed databases for real-time tracking of design and production activities, aiding project managers in cost estimation and cost analysis efforts. Then, as a mechanical engineer for Delta Engineering, Inc., I coordinated negotiations with vendors of materials and equipment. The consolidation of efforts resulted in a 12% savings in time invested in acquiring needed resources and, ultimately, a 9% reduction in time needed to take designs from concept to fabrication. As your mechanical engineer position requires management and design expertise similar to mine, I believe I would serve Trarn, Inc. well in this role.

I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to further discuss my engineering project management experience at your earliest convenience. I may be reached at 555.555.5555 or via email at Thank you for your time and consideration.
