I am a Mechanical / Project Engineer with project managing and mechanical design experience. Fallowing is the short overview of my professional experience.

After receiving a Bachelors of Science degree in Engineering Science from the University of Michigan in January 2005, I took a position as a Mechanical Engineer with Frame One Contracting. The work consisted of designing retrofit kits for automotive dynamometers in order to modify the equipment to the required standard. My professional function was to conduct all of the research and produce all of the documentation necessary for the equipment modifications. I also worked directly with suppliers, contractors, and electrical professionals in order to ensure the equipment was produced to and would performed to the specifications established by management.

In July 2008 I moved to Southern California to work for HELCO Steel. HELCO is a mini-mill that recycles scrap steel into rebar. There I worked as a Project Engineer and was assigned to the plant expansion project team. The expansion project was a $120 million undertaking that was aimed at increasing the plant’s manufacturing capacity while maintaining compliance with California strict environmental regulations.

Due to recent economic downturn the expansion project was canceled and my position was eliminated. Please consider me for a Mechanical Engineer position, I feel that my skills would be an asset in this role.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I hope to have the opportunity to discuss the opening with you in person.

The cover letter example below is that of a new graduate in mechanical engineering. The applicant started the cover letter by stating that he would be graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from the California Polytechnic State University in June 2006. Despite his lack of work experience, he was able to shine through by drawing attention to his overall knowledge of "leading edge" engineering principles, tools and practices, with emphasis on designing, building and testing of mechanical systems. In that regard, he stated his proficiency with the use of various automated solutions, including current releases of AutoCAD and SolidWorks. In areas where knowledge and technology is evolving at a fast pace, this can actually be a strength if you are a new graduate. In the fourth paragraph, the applicant discussed school projects in which he was the sole or lead designer. Additionally, he mentioned that he was a responsible leader in a family owned business, although he did not specify his role (maybe this is clarified in his resume). The applicant then addressed some of his soft skills and concluded the cover letter by reiterating his interest in landing a position as a mechanical engineer with the employer.
