Dear Alex Carson:
I read in the June 7, 2009 Journal and Courier employment section that A & D Industries is hiring
a welder apprentice (#46), and I would like to speak with you about this position. My strong work
ethic and solid teamwork skills make me a good match for A & D Industries. Also, my welding
experience at Russell’s Collision Service as an auto body technician, welder/fabricator and my
courses in welding make me a good candidate for your apprentice position.
For the past two years, I have been working as an auto body technician and welder/fabricator at
Russell’s Collision Service in Lafayette. My strong work ethic and solid teamwork skills helped
me increase my part-time hours at Russell’s from five to ten hours per week. I also received the
employee of the month award for May 2006 and April 2008 at my full-time position as a clerk at
Village Pantry in Lafayette. I believe that my responsible approach to work makes me a good
match for A & D Industries.
In addition, during my two years at Russell’s I have developed my welding skills to include
welding steel, aluminum, and stainless steel, working with hand and power tools, diagnosing auto
body problems and determining appropriate action to fix various types of damage. I have
knowledge of mathematics, and I can read technical manuals, schematic diagrams, and work
orders to carry out auto body damage repair. During coursework in High School and at Ivy Tech, I
have studied welding theory and principles, as well as welding codes. Lastly, I am familiar with
workplace safety practices. I believe my work experience and my coursework make me a strong
candidate to fill the welder apprentice position at A & D Industries.
I am looking forward to meeting with you to interview for the welder apprentice position. I am
sure that my strong work ethic, customer service skills, and welding experience can help A & D
Industries. If you have any questions, please call me at 765-123-4567. You may also email me at For your reference, I have included my résumé. Thank you for taking the
time to review my documents.
