SUBJECT: PARK MAINTENANCE SUPERVISOR
Please accept this letter and the enclosed resume as documents supporting my candidacy for the park maintenance supervisor position advertised in the City of Youngstown Employee Online Newsletter. As a current town employee, it would be a wonderful and logical next step to serve in a role that would ask me to manage, motivate, hire, and train others to perform efficiently and professionally.
For the past twelve years, I have held positions within the Youngstown Fire Department. Although my current position is secure and rewarding, it is strictly administrative and does not allow me to physically participate, as I have in the past, in actual firefighting or other hands-on activities that provide the outdoor work environment I most enjoy. The maintenance supervisor position described in your advertisement matches motivations and qualifications presented on my resume and in this letter.
I have worked on a family farm, attended a degree program in agriculture, and by choice I have always worked full-time or part-time with tree and excavation services. I am thoroughly familiar with the operation, maintenance, and repair of equipment, including safety practices. I also have the background and communication skills to train and supervise work crews using this equipment. I feel confident that I can provide Any Parks Department with reliability, dedication, and quality performance.
Since the fire department is not aware of my interest in making a change, your confidence is appreciated. But please feel comfortable consulting with the references provided regarding my background. I look forward to your response. Thank you for your consideration.
