Electrician Cover Letter Sample 1:

I am very interested in the electrician position that you have posted. I think I would be a good fit for this job because of my previous experience as an electrician, my education from Hendriks Technical College, my dependability and work ethic, and the fact that I am a registered electrician with the State of Michigan.

Recently, I worked as a tower wiring electrician on wind turbines in Iowa and North Dakota. These projects ended last year and I was subsequently laid off. As a tower wiring electrician, I installed and troubleshot for electronic components of wind turbines, including generators, motors, cables, and communication lines. I am comfortable working in confined and extreme spaces, under difficult working conditions, and for long hours. Typically, I worked in small crews (three to five people) with little to no supervision; other crewmembers looked to me for advice in performing the electrical work.

In addition to my specific electrician experience, my education and other work experience make me a great candidate for the electrician position. I graduated from Hendriks Technical College in May 2009 with a construction electrician certificate following a two-year program. I excelled in my electrician classes, and I ranked fifth in the construction electrician program. Other students frequently looked to me for assistance in figuring out problems and helping with projects.

My strong work ethic, dependability, and ability to work well with others also make me an excellent candidate for this position. I am willing to work long hours, including nights and weekends. In the past ten years, I have only called into work on one occasion (because of a family emergency). I am very eager to find an electrician job, and I will do whatever it takes to do the job right.
