Application for a full time position as a Mechanical Engineer

A position in your company is of great interest to me. This position will allow me to pursue the future of my dreams in Canada. The work that your company does is very exciting and challenging and I would like to be part of a dynamic and innovative company.

I believe that I can be a great asset to your company for the following reasons: I completed a Btech in Mechanical Engineering at CPUT in Bellville, Cape Town in July 2014. I am proficient in Autocad, ProgeCad, Solidworks, CNC machines, HVAC systems, Centrifugal fans and Fastnest. I am extremely computer literate and possess excellent maths skills. I enjoy design, challenges and the satisfaction of achieving established goals. I enjoy participating on team projects, work well under stressful conditions and possess the commitment which is required to be part of a productive team. I look forward to the challenges presented by living and working in a new country and with hard work and determination I aim to prevail.

I would appreciate the opportunity to prove myself within your company.

Please see attached CV.
