Dear Hiring Manager,

I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to apply to become an Industrial Engineer at Flagship Engineering. This position will allow me to make the most out of my penchant for systematic thinking and my organizational bent. I am an extremely conscientious worker who understands the importance of following a plan and of making sure that all parts of a project — both mechanical and human — are running smoothly.

As befits an industrial engineer, I have advanced knowledge of physics, mathematics, engineering principles and industrial processes. My experience working as an Industrial Engineer for Centurion Petroleum Corp. has familiarized me with how to examine procedure plans and implement steps to improve efficiency, conduct reliable and accurate maintenance checks, coordinate teams of workers to efficiently bring large-scale projects to life, entering results into databases, generating and examining records and presenting my results to superiors in anticipation of further instruction. I have also garnered a reputation for my management abilities and my way of fostering a collaborative spirit among the engineers whom it is my responsibility to direct. I have found that a spirit of openness that encourages all members of the team to submit design proposals or other suggestions during a project tends to foster team cohesion.

As a result of my efforts leading a team of Junior Engineers, I was able to ultimately improve Centurion’s ability to extract petroleum and cut its production costs by 6% and 11%, respectively.

Thank you very much for your time and attention in considering me for this all-important role. I have demonstrated an ability to apply rigorous critical attention to problems of maximizing industrial efficiency, and I hope to prove my mettle as we progress further along in the hiring process. I would be honored to put my abilities to work for you and become a part of the family at Flagship Engineering.
