Dear Mr. Smith:

Re: Employment as a Diesel Engine Mechanic's Appretice

I am writing, on recommendation of your yard boss, Jeff Crane, to let you know I am interested in pursuing employment with your company. I am currently in my third year of the Ministry of Advanced Education, Training and Technology's apprenticeship program as a Diesel Engine Mechanic.

As you are aware, this program includes both classroom training and the collection of on-the-job experience hours. The details of my experience and training are included in the attached resume. My first year of hours was obtained with a construction company and my second with a transport company. Through this I learned that I prefer working on trucks.

I would be very glad to meet with you at your convenience. My telephone number is 555-1212. In the meantime, I would be happy to provide andy additional information you may require.

Yours very truly,

I. Hope
