Programmer Cover Letter Example

If you are looking to apply for roles as a Computer Programmer then you will have some previous work experience that you have referred to and show what programming languages that you are able to work in. Some programming languages maybe Visual Basic, C++, SQL etc. You will need to keep up to date with new languages and ways of doing things to be able to keep up in the fast paced environment of IT.

Usually, you will have a technical and logical mind to work in this industry and you may even enjoy solving problems. You will have to remember that not everyone works in this manner and that you may need to explain technical issues to people in a non technical manager so that they understand what you are talking about.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Application for the role of Programmer

I would like to apply for the role of Programmer which I have seen advertised in (which publication and when).

My career in IT began (when) and since this time I have been working in a variety of different IT roles from support to database queries and over the past two years I have got into programming in a big way and I now know that this is the career path that I wish to take.

I currently use my programming skills to help build a new system for a large warehouse to ensure that the goods are recorded in and out quickly and accurately. My background is of a retail and manufacturing type and I do have a lot of knowledge in this area.

Please find enclosed my latest CV which details the experiences and qualifications that I have. If you would like to discuss this with me further please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV.

Yours sincerely
