Kerry R. Thomas
Dear Sir or Ma’am:
I am very interested in your Maintenance position, and I suspect you’ll find very few candidates with a background such as mine and it’s one I’d like to put to work on your behalf.
As you’ll see on the enclosed resume, the depth of my experience in maintenance offers you the opportunity to hire a real pro that needs little or no training.
Moreover, having worked as a Maintenance Tech, as well as a Maintenance Supervisor, I have the skills to be proactive when faced with any maintenance issue. I also bring customer service skills by treating my residents like my neighbors; always willing to go above and beyond to satisfy his or her needs. I have all the necessary certifications needed in this field, thus minimizing outside costs to your company.
Because of my level of experience in this field, the vendors respect my judgment on the quality of services given. Therefore if the quality does not meet the company’s standards I make sure that their expectations are exceeded.
There is so much more that I would like to express in this cover letter, however a personal interview would allow me to demonstrate my talents more effectively. I look forward to hearing from you, and I would like to thank you for your attention and consideration in this matter.
