Dear Mr Smith

Position of System Administrator

I enclose my CV in relation to the above post as I am really interested in working for your company.

I have a degree in information technology and eight years of experience in developing, installing and maintaining computer systems, including local area networks, wide area networks, network segments, intranet systems and internet systems. I have excellent troubleshooting and evaluation skills and have been given increasingly complex systems to manage as my experience has grown.

I am able to explain technical terms in easy to understand language and have also trained IT staff with less experienced in the past. I am very well organised and proficient at managing multiple demands without compromising service standards. I can bring enthusiasm, dedication and patience to this role and feel sure that I can contribute significantly to the success of the company.

I am keen to discuss my qualities in greater detail at the interview and can be contacted on (phone number) or (e-mail address).

Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Jane Brown
