Dear Ms. Helen Kinney,
I am applying for the position of Development Engineer that you have listed for your company, TriQuint Semiconductor.
I have a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering with a minor in computer engineering and have many years experience developing new products that offer new innovations. I have also been instrumental in the testing of new products to ensure they are ready to be marketed to consumers. After the product has been green lit to go into production, I have been instrumental in working directly with the graphics team in coming up with the branding for the product which includes all marketing and packaging campaigns.
I have worked closely with focus groups to determine what the customers want and need to make their life easier or more entertaining. In some cases, I simply took existing products and reworked them to the specification of the focus group in order to make a good product better. I have also working with the department head of the production sector of the company to detail ways to manufacture the new products without sacrificing quality while staying under budget.
I am a highly organized person and can work on multiple projects at one time and with my time management skills, I can ensure that every project is completed when expected. I am a great communicator which is important when dealing with both focus groups and with department heads to ensure that production of new products goes as planned.
I would like to discuss your needs for a development engineer further and would appreciate a call at (555)-555-5555 in order to set up a meeting.
