Mechanical Engineer Cover Letter
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 was proficient 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.
