Subject: Application for position of Embedded Software Engineer
Dear Mrs. Mayo,
My name is Kimberly Gibbs, and I would like to take the opportunity today to apply for your Embedded Software Engineer position at Extron Electronics. Thank you for taking a look at the enclosed resume and cover letter.
While attending college for a Master’s Degree in Software Engineering from New York City College of Technology, I worked part-time as an Embedded Software Engineer intern at Hughes Network Systems; and developed a great sense of what is required of an Embedded Software Engineer for a large corporation. Once graduated from college in 1987, I began work for this company as a full time Embedded Software Engineer. I have worked in this position for the past seven years, and have found many successes in creating and submitting project plans for software products in that time. Now, I am looking for a bigger challenge, and a real trailblazer of a company to work for. This is why I apply today to your position. Rest assured that I am the best person for this position, and have great communications skills as well.
I look forward to a possible meeting, and thank you for your attention in reviewing this cover letter and resume. I eagerly await your response.
