Dear Mr. Smith,
As a Senior Software Engineer, I would bring to your organization over ten years of experience in software design and development within the telecommunications and defense-related industries and expertise in all phases of the software development life cycle. In addition, I have substantial experience analyzing, troubleshooting, and resolving complex software issues. Further highlights of my background include
- An extensive background developing and debugging software systems and solutions in C, C++, Perl, and Java in UNIX, Linux, and Windows NT environments.
- Proficiency as technical lead or individual contributor on cross-functional product development teams challenged with ensuring on-time, on-budget, and on-target results.
- A Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering with a concentration in VLSI design and microwave engineering.
For the past ten years I have provided engineering expertise for multiuser telecommunications systems at Cummings Networks, where I have been called upon to investigate and resolve complex software issues, troubleshoot and repair bugs, design new functionality and software enhancements, and deliver technical product training to peers and field engineers. I’ve earned a sound reputation as THE person to call on when critical customer acceptance issues have eluded
resolution by others.
If your organization is seeking a dependable, results-driven team player with a solidperformance track record and outstanding technical capabilities, you need look no further. The accomplishments noted within the accompanying resume will illustrate the valuable contributions I can make to your team. I would be very interested in learning more about your
open position and discussing my qualifications more fully. I will take the initiative to contact you next week to see if we can arrange for a mutually convenient meeting.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you.
