Application for the role of Software Engineer
I would like to apply for the role of Software Engineer which you have advertised in (which publication and when).
I have been working in Software for over five years and enjoy working with the other parts of my team to ensure that the design and development of a piece of software is done to the clients requirements and can fulfil what they would like the software to be able to achieve.
I have been involved in the testing of a new piece of software and also the maintenance side of it once the software is up and running for a client. I find it a very interesting and stimulating role. I enjoy learning and keeping up to date at all times and I enjoy being able to sit down with a client and help them decide what they want and what they are best with for their business.
I am a methodical person who likes to work in a planned and structured manner. I have enclosed my CV for your consideration. If you have any questions regarding my skills and experiences then please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV. I look forward to hearing from you.
