Dear Ms. Susan Aiken,

Please accept this letter as my application for the position of Software Test Engineer in your firm. You will find my resume and references attached.

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and five years’ solid experience testing software in both Windows and Linux environments. I am also familiar with test automation scripting, and with the MKS Integrity test management tool.

I have excellent debugging skills, and believe strongly that testing goes beyond just executing a test protocol. One of my greatest strengths is my inquisitive nature. I have the ability to break the code, and to then fix it in order to prevent potential problems. I am a strong team member, whether I am working under the direction of a superior or in a supervisory role.

I am proficient with coding in C++ and Java, and database design in SQL. I have an understanding of software development using Python. I have the experience necessary to tackle troubleshooting of network issues. Report writing is not a problem for me, as I have superior communication skills and experience using a number of office applications useful for the generation of documents. As you can see, I am able to function in a wide range of capacities and never back away from any new challenge.

I welcome the opportunity to discuss the position with you at greater length, and am happy to provide any further details you should require. I can be reached at (333)-992-8250 at your convenience.
