Sending an application to the employers without appending it with a cover letter shows unprofessionalism and should be avoided if you want to get immediate response from the employers. Cover letters have become an integral part of your job search and they are definitely targeted at getting an interview call from the employer and not a job. You should consider drafting your cover letter by reading the requirements specified by the employer in the advertisement. Give equal importance to all the requirements specified by the recruiter and include each one of them in your letter. This pipefitter cover letter will help you in writing your cover letter.
Job Description for a Pipe Fitter:
Pipefitters help in installation and maintenance of all kinds of pipes in big factories and manufacturing industries.
