Re: Welder Position -- Advertised on Monster

Dear Mr. Jones:

The advertisement on Monster for an experienced welder caught my eye, and I am very interested in this position.

As a quality-focused and safety-minded pipe welder with substantial refinery experience, my qualifications match the requirements listed in the job posting.

Key strengths:

  • Experience using SMAW (shielded metal arc welding) and GMAW (gas metal arc welding) processes to weld carbon steel, stainless steel and various alloys per specifications
  • Proficiencies in fabricating, replacing, installing and hydro-testing piping spools and related piping supports and hangers
  • Knowledge of QA testing requirements to complete pipe welding and structural welding projects with superior quality and accuracy
  • Experience making rapid welding repairs to avoid costly downtime and delays
  • Adherence to safety procedures when handling welding and cutter tools

I follow ISO standards for welding and I am skilled at working from prints, piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) to weld both complex and straightforward piping, spools, parts and assemblies.

I am confident I would quickly become a valuable member of your pipe-welding team. Please contact me at (555) 555-5555 to arrange an appointment for the interview and pipe test.

Thank you for your time.

Miriam Smith
