Dear Mr. Smith,
Although I opted for retirement at a young age, I have come to realize that I have too much energy and many skills that I still enjoy using. Retirement is definitely not for me. Therefore, your ad for a maintenance specialist caught my attention as I offer the key qualifications your company needs.
Specifically, I have an excellent performance record in the operation and maintenance of building systems and equipment, including electrical, HVAC, telecommunications, pneumatic, electromechanical, and hydraulics. I am also knowledgeable about state building codes, safety, and other regulatory guidelines.
My expertise encompasses multisite facilities oversight, staff supervision, project management, and vendor relations. Examples of relevant accomplishments include reduction in annual maintenance costs and improved functional capabilities while consistently delivering quality service.
Equally important are my planning, organization, and communication strengths. Despite the challenges that can often be encountered, I have completed projects on time and under budget on a consistent basis. I would welcome a personal interview to discuss the value I would add to your company. I will contact you next week to set up a time we can meet.
