Writing for Work

The most enjoyable part of the job for many automobile body repair technicians is working with their hands to make cars beautiful. However, they must also use their hands to create estimates, bids, quotes, letters to insurance companies, applications and resumes. One important type of document you will write is a letter introducing yourself to potential employers. The contents of a typical letter is shown below.
