Dear Mr. Cooper,
My name is Joseph Lavalley and I write to introduce myself in answer to your advertisement for a Windows System Administrator at Alliance Data. I would make a great choice for this position, and have included my resume with this cover letter for your consideration.
I was recently introduced to your company’s position by Richard Phillips, and was eager to submit my credentials. I know that you are one of the leading companies in the area, and I have the skills and experience that could bring more success to that reputation. I have a Master’s Degree in Computer Science from Franklin & Marshall College, and over six years as a Windows System Administrator at PESystems. In this role, I have managed the entire windows needs of all internal systems for over 200 company computers in installation, research, analysis, and maintenance. I am confident I can do the same for your company in this role. I have superior communications skills and know windows programs and applications like the back of my hand.
You will find my resume enclosed with this cover letter for more information on my background. Thank you so much, and I hope that you contact me at the information provided above.
