Application for the role of PHP Developer
I would like to apply for the role of PHP Developer which I have seen advertised in (which publication and when).
I have been working in web development and web design since I began my career in IT following an IT degree and specialising in the web side. I enjoy working on websites and pages and the interaction with the clients to ensure that the website is as they specifically want it.
I am a real problem solver and work in a methodical manner. I concentrate very hard in my work and like to ensure that I meet my deadlines and work to the clients timeframes.
I have enclosed my CV for your consideration which details my qualifications related to IT and also my previous work experience which is relevant to this role. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss this with you further but if you have any questions before hand, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to answer anything you need to know related to my previous experience.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV and I look forward to hearing from you.
