Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
Having recently completed my Bachelor’s in Computer Science, I am writing to you to express my interest in your entry-level Software Developer position that was advertised on Dice.com. I have reviewed your advertisement and find my skills align well with your requirements. Please see below:
- You require strong analytical, problem solving, and time management skills. In my last term, I led my group as project manager, assigning different aspects of our work to various team members while working to overcome any issues that arose and deliver the project on-time.
- You also require strong written and verbal communication skills. In school, I made contributions to the university-published monthly periodical, covering topics on emerging technology. Additionally, I served as a campus guide, escorting prospective students and their families on campus tours.
In addition to these qualifications, I am experienced in creating phone apps on the Android platform. In one instance, I won a technology contest hosted at our school for developing an application that paired students in need of academic assistance with user-rated tutors.
Confident I will be a good match for your opening, I respectfully request a personal meeting to learn more about your goals for this position and discuss how I can help you achieve them. I will make myself available at your convenience and look forward to your call. Thank you for your time and consideration.
