Re: Journeyman Welder Position (Job Reference Number 999999)
Dear Mr. Jacobs:
I am interested in the journeyman welder position that you advertised this week in the Daily Herald Tribune.
I recently completed my journeyman certification with Smythe Manufacturing in Fort McMurray. I have also worked for three years on a variety of construction sites in Grande Prairie. My schedule is flexible, so I can work morning, afternoon and evening shifts as your ad describes. I am also fully certified for WHMIS.
My resumé is attached. I look forward to meeting with you.
