Dear Ms. Roberts,
Your advertisement for software engineers in the January issue of the
IEEE Spectrum caught my attention. I was drawn to the ad by my strong
interest in both software design and Database.
I have worked with a CALMA system in developing VLSI circuits, and I
also have substantial experience in the design of interactive CAD
software. Because of this experience, I can make a direct and immediate
contribution to your department. I have enclosed a copy of my resume,
which details my qualifications and suggests how I might be of service
I would like very much to meet with you to discuss your open positions
for software engineers. If you wish to arrange an interview, please
contact me at the above address or by telephone at (518) 271-9999.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

Dear Mr. Curtis,
As an experienced computer programmer who is presently pursuing a
master's degree in electrical engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic
Institute, I am writing to request information about possible summer
employment opportunities with HAL. I am interested in a position that
will allow me to combine the talents I have developed in both computer
programming and electrical engineering. However, as you can see from
the attached resume, I have extensive experience in many related fields,
and I always enjoy new challenges.
I feel that it is important for me to maintain a practical, real-world
perspective while developing my academic abilities. I am proud of the
fact that I have financed my entire education through scholarships and
summer jobs related to my field of study. This work experience has
enhanced my appreciation for the education I am pursuing. I find that I
learn as much from my summer jobs as I do from my academic studies.
For example, during the summer of 1986, while working for IBM in
Boca Raton, Florida, I gained a great deal of practical experience in the
field of electronic circuit logic and driver design. When I returned to
school in the fall and took Computer Hardware Design, I found that my
experience with IBM had thoroughly prepared me for the subject.
Having said all this, I realize that your first consideration in hiring an
applicant must not be the potential educational experience HAL can
provide, but the skills and services the applicant has to offer. I hope the
experience and education described in my resume suggest how I might
be of service to HAL.
I welcome the opportunity to discuss with you how I might best assist
HAL in fulfilling its present corporate needs. I will be available for
employment from May 14 through August 31, 2002. Please let me know
what summer employment opportunities are available at HAL for
someone with my education, experience, and interests. You can reach
me at the above address or by phone at (518) 271-0000.
Thank you for your consideration.
