Application for the role of Oil Worker
I have recently seen the position of Oil worker advertised in (which publication/online etc and when) and I would like to submit my CV in application.
I graduated from (which university, in when) in Mechanical Engineering and I did an element of working with Oil and have got a good understanding of this role and I am very much looking forward to beginning a career on an Oil rig.
I feel that my efforts and work on an oil rig for months at a time will be good as it allows you to concentrate on the job at hand and develop it whilst fully concentrating on it.
I am a hard worker, I am keen to learn new skills and I feel that I have had a lot of experience in working with others and developing my communication skills. I feel that good communication is vital for most roles and for running a successful business.
I am available for an interview at short notice and would welcome the opportunity to be able to explain my learning and experience to date and how I feel I would be a good addition to the team.
Thank you for taking the time to read my application.
