Dear Ms Pham
Re: Electrical Engineer, Minerals/Mining – Ref FGR299
In response to your advertisement on Seek.com, I believe I am an excellent candidate for the role of Electrical Engineer. With five years experience on complex engineering projects, I have the ability to deliver high-level projects on time and within budget. I thrive on a job well done and would love to join the AshtilMining team.
I have a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering from the University of Western Australia and am a member of Engineers Australia. In my current role at Broadmill Mining I have been lead electrical engineer for several projects, including the Fennell Gas Conservation project in WA which I designed and executed. I have excellent organisational and coordinating skills and enjoy juggling all aspects of a project, from designing, drawing circuitry and cost forecasting, to troubleshooting, conducting quality assurance and reporting.
In my last project I designed and developed equipment during the redevelopment of the Agenome Mine. I planned and designed the power station and generator systems using AutoCAD, organised delivery and installation schedules, supervised the construction and tested all systems to ensure adherence to safety standards. The project took eight months to complete and the systems are working perfectly.
My written and oral communication skills are excellent and I enjoy working as part of a team, as well as liaising with contractors and project stakeholders. I enjoy the company and support of my peers while being able to manage my priorities and work. My day-to-day job involves efficiently managing others, communicating complex data to the technical team and breaking down this information for clients and stakeholders.
Problem-solving and troubleshooting are tasks which I face on a daily basis and am confident at resolving. When there is an issue, as often happens in large-scale projects, I am sure to investigate the issue fully, scope out the best methods to resolve it, probe implications of each method, and communicate the data clearly with all relevant team members.
Most of all, I am a committed professional with the skills and attributes the job requires, and a strong determination to achieve an excellent outcome for my employer. I hope to have the opportunity to discuss this more with you at an interview.
Sample cover letter for Internship position at Texas Instruments
Electrical Engineering Internship
I am interested in summer intern opportunities with Texas Instruments, the world’s premiere microelectronics and semiconductor manufacturer. I have heard several exciting testimonials about careers at Texas Instruments from students, professors, and current employees and I would be interested in learning more about available internship and co-op opportunities for graduate level electrical engineering majors.
I will graduate with my B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the XXXX in May 2016 and I am eager to exercise my engineering skills and knowledge before starting my M.S. in Electrical Engineering in fall 2016 (M.S.E.E. expected graduation spring 2017). I have several years of experience in leadership roles and working in team-oriented environments. I also have excellent technical experience, including experience with FPGAs, lab equipment (DMM, Oscilloscope, function generator, etc.), robotics, computer vision, microelectronics, analog circuits (design, implementation, and testing), embedded systems, and software skills (Verilog, C, Python, assembly languages, etc.). I have fabricated my own MOSFET and BJT ICs in a class 100 cleanroom as part of a graduate level solid state device fabrication course. I will take more graduate level coursework next semester, including a DSP applications course utilizing MATLAB and a VLSI design course utilizing Cadence EDA software. I believe I have shown great aptitude for all facets of electrical engineering, including both hardware and software aspects and I am eager to learn new skills and technologies.
My attached résumé contains additional details on my experience and skills. I would appreciate the opportunity to talk with you and to provide further information on my candidacy. Thank you for your time and consideration.
