Application for the role of IT Trainee
I would like to apply for the role of IT Trainee which I have seen advertised in (which publication and when).
I have had a keen interest in IT since a young age. I have spent many hours building computers in my bedroom and taking things apart. I like to experiment with programs and look at what I can and cannot do and I would be very interested in this role that you are recruiting for.
I am an organised and professional person. I feel that I have good communication skills. I have good timekeeping skills and always like to get my work done on time efficiently.
I have enclosed my CV for your perusal and this includes my education skills and courses which may be of interest to you.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I can come for an interview at short notice and able to do any tests that you may like me to do.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV and I look forward to hearing from you.
