Dear Ms. Martha Shaul,

I was recently informed of an opening in your company Trofholz Technologies for a Linux system administrator. Attached you will find my resume for your convenience and consideration.

I have a bachelor’s degree in computer science and networking and have completed the certification program in UNIX and Linux and am fully certified. As the technologies have advanced, I have kept up with these changes in order to stay relevant. My experience includes a summer internship and four years of practical application where it was my task to install and maintain all server hardware and software systems. This included administering all server performance to ensure availability and maintaining all system backups and assisting in the restoration of all procedures.

I have great interpersonal skills which are necessary when providing training when required for all users. This is even truer for those who may not have as much computer experience and who need extra help to understand the system. My written communication skills are also above average which allows me to write reports and develop training manuals for employees and clients.

Other skills are the ability to evaluate all documentation according the systems requirements while evaluating all designs and performing tests on development activities. This includes administering all complex methodologies and integrating all required software and resolving all issues through all technologies while providing back up support.

Please feel free to contact me at any time by calling (123)-803-1441 to set up an interview. I look forward to hearing from you.


Your Signature

Mary Bernal
