Your posting for pre-apprentice lineman is right on line with my career plans. After reviewing your job posting requisition and having researched Pacific Gas & Electric Company, I am confident my education at Northwest Lineman College and my military experience will make me a perfect candidate for this position. I am familiar with working overtime at the discretion of my supervisor and also being on call. I believe my qualifications and skills match your requirements in the following ways:
Safety. In my past work history, I have never had a lost time accident. While in the military, I was in charge of decision making that effected lives and using MSDS documents. I also attended weekly safety meetings and tailboards. At Northwest Lineman College, I earned my certifications in OSHA 1910.269, first aid, CPR, vault rescue, and pole-top rescue. During my tenure at Northwest Lineman College. Safety awareness is my number one priority, safety is paramount. Communication was key in my past occupation and communication is vital in being a pre-apprentice lineman.
Skills. At Northwest Lineman College, I received over 500 hours in construction and maintenance of overhead and underground distribution and transmission system. Eighty percent of my training was in the field acquiring skills in climbing wood poles above 35 feet and ground man skills. Most importantly working within a team, and promoting a positive work environment. I can operate boom trucks, portable/hydraulic tools, and other related equipment in the electric field. I am very adaptable and confident I have the skills to succeed as a PG&E employee. I have the ability to operate personal computers and interpersonal communications.
Knowledge. At Northwest
