Application for the role of Computer Systems Analyst
I would like to apply for the role of Computer Systems Analyst which I have seen advertised in (where) and (when).
I have been in an IT career now for (how long) following (your entry route into IT, degree, course, work experience etc). I am now seeking to continue my career in a Systems Analyst role and having researched your company, I feel that my skills are transferable (in what way? Same sector? Industry? Similar projects?).
During my career, I have provided detailed analysis to management and given advice on what systems and reporting tools should be used. I have worked with systems testers to ensure that the systems we run are effective for our business and work well with few problems and the users being able to pick it up quickly.
I am a true IT geek, I enjoy keeping up to date with new technologies and like to introduce these into a business to benefit the business. I am organised in my work, I like to be very hands on helping other team members and can work on many projects at once. I work to tight deadlines and always ensure that my work is done efficiently and effectively.
I have enclosed my CV for you to see my detailed work history. If you are interested in my skills, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV.
Good luck with writing your covering letter.
