Dear Ms. Davis,

I am writing to apply for the Linux Admin job with Software Folks, Inc. and my credentials match the requirements in your posting.

I have a Master’s Degree in IT and several years of experience working as an Assistant Linux Admin where I gained extensive knowledge in this field. This experience has taught me what I need to know to be the best applicant for this job and I know that I can be a valuable member of your team.

I am familiar with installation, configuration, patching and upgrading systems. My experience includes troubleshooting to find the cause of problems when they occur and then providing a solution to the problems in a fast and timely manner. It also includes fine-tuning and monitoring system performance. I also have experience performing backups and recoveries.

I have excellent verbal, reading and writing skills, which are vital in communicating with different departments within the company and when dealing with clients who have no technical background. I also have experience working with Windows OS administration, network storage devices and network devices such as ASA firewall and Cisco switches.

I have very strong administration skills and experience working with Linux Operating Systems and scripting language. I also have strong technical and time management skills. I have the ability to be “on-call” in the event of an emergency and I can provide support for both end user’s and onsite systems.

You can reach me for an interview by calling (123)-949-8185 and I hope to meet with you soon.

Respectfully,

Your Signature

Lee Rogers
