Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am writing to express my interest in the position of Senior Software Engineer that was advertised in the local newspaper yesterday.
I graduated in Computer Science from the University of Manchester, and later I completed my post-graduation in Applied Software Engineering. I am hard-working and I have a well-developed problem solving ability which makes me a suitable candidate at your esteemed company.
I am a person who always works with innovative ideas, and I believe, with the help of artificial intelligence, I can explore more opportunities in my work sector to be more efficient and productive.
I assisted ‘The Future World’, a part of the University of Barcelona for three years, in the development of an artificial intelligence that has the ability to recognize individual personality traits in humans. My CV is attached for your perusal, and provided that you show interest in me, you can ring me up in the first mobile number mentioned.
I look forward to discussing this opportunity further at interview
