My name is XYZ and I am writing to apply for the Mechanical Design Engineer position at Company Z. I have spoken with several members of Company Z’s Mechanical Engineering team and was each time impressed by the enthusiasm, passion, and commitment of your employees. I’ve developed a strong interest in providing incredible service to clients across many diverse customer demographics and have in-depth experience doing so.
My interest in Mechanical Design Engineering developed during my co-op at Company A where my duties forced me to learn and apply proper analysis and accounting procedures in order to organize and grow the company’s complex business pipeline. During this time, I designed a custom accounting system that efficiently and accurately recorded the coming year’s fiscal activity. This provided me with a strong understanding of practical accounting theory and applied internal control. Over the course of the position, I interacted regularly with our clients and worked as part of a team in the finance department, forecasting cash flows and preparing quarterly budgets and reconciliations. My accounting and time management skills will be instrumental to my success at Company Z.
Prior to my work at Company A, I was able to apply my Mechanical Design Engineering experience to Company B where I was given the opportunity to direct the engineering department and COO in their fiscal year-end closing and annual internal and external third-party audits. It was here that I found my passion for understanding business operations. I enjoyed understanding how each employee’s work helped accomplish the organization’s goals because I was able to find ways to perform my own tasks more efficiently to ensure departmental success.
I am confident that my Mechanical Design Engineering skills and experience will align with Company Z’s goals of providing quality products and services. I am excited to discuss my qualifications in greater detail at an interview.
