“Dear Ms. Clothier,

I am writing to apply for the position of IT Specialist. My Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology and four years of experience constructing, managing, and improving computer networks makes me a solid candidate for your organization.

My professional experience includes developing and managing the day-to-day operations of the internal network at Grey Technologies. I am certified in several IT languages, including Ruby and Perl C++. I think I can be a great asset at Silver Technologies with my education and set of skills.

Here are my most relevant skills and accomplishments:

Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology from Stanford University

Developed and implemented infrastructure inspection plan to assure network quality

Installed and hardwired hardware and infrastructure upgrades

Performed regular network security checks and updates

Analyzed network KPIs and regularly presented findings to non-technical stakeholders

Surely you’ll come across candidates with similar qualifications, but I think what sets me apart is my adaptability. I pride myself on being able to wear many IT hats and using my skills to meet the ever-changing needs of the organization. If you are interested in learning more about how I can be an asset to Silver Technologies, then I’d be happy to schedule an interview. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Dear Hiring Manager,

I’m happy to be applying to the currently open IT Specialist position at Crossover Software. I have have loved tinkering with computers since childhood and have had an intense desire to pick them apart and learn how they work from the start. This early fascination grew in me over the years and I acquired a strong set of problem-solving skills. I think that with my analytical acumen, I can bring something of value to your company.

I have previous experience working as a software developer for Flagship Computer Engineering. In this role, I not only wrote intricate software, but I also interacted regularly with customers to help them resolve their issues with software products. In addition to this, I have earned A+ and Network+ Certifications from CompTIA, which have given me significant hands-on experience setting up Wi-Fi networks, configuring them, working with routers, adding and removing additional devices to private networks and debugging a wide range of software and hardware issues in the IT world.

Moreover, I am familiar with a broad assortment of malware types and how to remove them or present them from infecting a system. Using what I know, I have been able to work with customers both remotely and in-person to resolve their computer-related difficulties. I thus am just as experienced with the technical end of IT as I am with the customer service end.

I am grateful for your time, kindness and attention in considering me for this position. Working as an IT Specialist at Crossover Software would not only allow me an outlet for what I think are my natural analytical abilities, but it would also allow me to do something I love while providing service and assistance to others. It would be an honor to be able to work as part of the team of excellent IT Specialists and Technicians that you have at Crossover.

Sincerely,

Jensen Pope”
