I am writing to express my interest in the position of the Software Engineer that was advertised in the local newspaper last week.
After my successful completion of graduation in Computer Science from the University of Manchester, I started admiring the job of a Software Engineer. Therefore, I took a Master’s Degree in Applied Software Engineering in a couple of years. It was at this time, I came to know about your company from one of my close friends.
I became very much impressed with the performance of your company even during adverse economic situations, and I would consider it a great opportunity if I am hired by you. I am really confident that I can develop my skills under your expert guidance and I look forward to be innovative once I am placed in your company.
