RE: Application for the Post of Assistant Engineer
I recently came across your online advertisement in Sokkia’s corporate website in search for an Assistant Engineering. I am excited at the prospect of being able to contribute to your esteemed organisation and I wish to apply for the above position. A task oriented and driven individual, I believe I have the credentials and skills that you are looking for in the ideal candidate.

My years of training have equipped me with the knowledge and skills in all electronic functions which include machine vision, automation & control systems design and implementation. I was also given opportunities to work on software design in digital design written in VHDL and hardware aspect of FPGA.
My six-month stint as a design engineer with 4i2i Pte Ltd in the United Kingdom in 20__ has further provided me with valuable work experience. The job, which required me to be involved in the technical design, maintenance and servicing of automation system for building control, also honed my adaptability and ability in meeting stringent deadlines.
