Dear Ms. Susan Loomis,
I am writing to apply for the position of Software Analyst at Genesis Software Solutions, Inc.
I possess a bachelor’s degree in computer science and while in college, I completed an internship to gain firsthand experience working as an analyst. I understand and have the ability to solve complex problems that often occur in this line of work such as functionality issues and problems with user interface. I am familiar with the terminology used and I have the ability to stay current with the changes that take place.
I have acquired the skills and training needed to work with the developers and programmers by reviewing specifications and testing programs used to develop computer software to ensure the product meets the desired requirements. I also have the ability to write documentation on how to use the software in a way that users can understand and to provide internal documentation that includes all test results, feedback, any changes made and the final agreement to complete the product.
I am very detailed oriented and I have the ability to stay alert and focused on my work even when things around become hectic. I am self-motivated, so I can stay on track and meet my goals even when working in solitude. I have the experience, training and skills to maintain quality and to help keep projects moving forward according to schedule.
This type of technology has always fascinated me and I find a career as a Software Analyst to be very rewarding. I am looking forward to meeting with you in person to discuss this position in more detail.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555.
