Dear Mr Ross,

Re: Programmer (Ref: IT35)

I am grateful for the time that you took out of your busy schedule to discuss the above vacancy with me. I wish to confirm that I am still very interested in this role and making a positive impact on your organisation’s IT services.

I graduated in 2016 from the University of Kent with a first-class degree in BSc Computer Science. Some of the modules that I studied include; programming languages, principles of IT systems, computing for business, software engineering, and operating systems. As part of my degree programme, I completed a one-year placement year at IBM as a Junior Software Engineer. My responsibilities included designing, coding and debugging software programs.

I am an analytical minded and tech-savvy individual with outstanding knowledge of all the standard programming languages including C++ and Java. Besides my technical expertise, I also possess excellent interpersonal and people skills. My very good communication skills, both written and verbal, enable me to work effectively with both non-technical clients and fellow IT professionals. I have the ability to explain complex and technical concepts easily and straightforwardly to clients and other stakeholders.

Working for Bold IT Services would be an honour, and I am convinced that my education and work experience in computer science will make me an invaluable member of your team.

I would be grateful if you could give me the chance to meet you in person to further discuss the contribution that I can make to your organisation. In the meantime, I would like to thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Yours sincerely,

~ Signature goes here ~

Simon Turner.
