Dear Mr. Smith,
In response to your recent advertisement, I’ve enclosed a copy of my resume. I have recently moved to the Northwest from Texas, where I owned an automotive repair shop. I still have quite a bit of equipment but am not interested in owning or starting a business again.
I have very strong diagnostic and repair skills with the belief that no job is too difficult. While building a strong business, I developed the reputation of complete honesty with the ability to perform accurate and lasting repairs. I also had a strong reputation among the dealers, with them often calling me for advice. My work was honored by a company that provided rebuilt motors by warranting any motor supplied by them that I installed. As you can see, I developed a positive and strong business reputation for high quality and honest work. I would like to assist another company in their success by providing top-notch technician work for them.
The position you have available appears to be one that matches my skills very closely. I would like the opportunity to meet with you personally where we may further discuss your requirements and my abilities. You may contact me at 555-555-5555 to set up a mutually convenient time. Thank you for taking the time to review my resume, and I look forward to your call.
