Dear Robin Cook:
My enthusiasm for media first began as a child, when we got our first television set for the family room. Since those many years ago, I have cultivated this passion into a set of core industry values, skill sets, and qualifications that makes me the best candidate for your Cable Technician position in Brooklyn, NY.
As a recent graduate of Brooklyn Community College with an advanced degree in Technical Repair and Function Science, I add to this profound passion for this trade and industry, with a first hand, comprehensive education in its methodology. Moreover, I have worked as an apprentice at a cable repair company for the duration of my education-learning all the functions, capabilities, and safety awarenesses of cable repair and technology.
My hard work, attention to detail, and unparalleled technological skills have guaranteed my career success so far in this industry; and I look towards this position at Comcast Media building upon this career experience in the near future. Please let me know if there are any other materials or references that could aid in your decision for this position. I look forward to speaking with you further about this position, and the positive addition I can make in the company.
