Ms. Joey Mondaca
B & B Air Conditioning and Heating
209 Bath Ave
Long Branch, NJ 07740-6102
Dear Ms. Mondaca,
My 10 years of comprehensive air conditioning training and a successful technical career with the U.S. Army, where I progressed through the rank of Master Sergeant, make me an ideal candidate for the HVAC technician you have posted on your company job board.
I am fully certified to work on residential, commercial, and industrial heating and cooling systems. My experience makes me well-equipped for installing, troubleshooting, and repairing all types of systems.
My years in the military have also helped me hone my interpersonal skills, thus I not only know my way around schematic drawings, compressors, and air handlers, but I also have a strong customer service focus. I know how to make customers feel confident in my abilities -- and the services I provide.
I am sure my services would be useful to you, and I will call you in the next week to discuss an interview where we can review my qualifications in greater depth.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
