Dear Ms. Brady,
am writing to present myself for the position of Electronic Engineer, which you posted online. Please find enclosed my resume and reference letters, which I am sure you will agree are impeccable.
I graduated from Oregon State University with a four-year undergraduate degree in Electronic Engineering Technology. I maintained a solid 4.0 grade point average throughout my studies, and graduated with honors. I have been employed for the past six years as an electronic engineer in the development of consumer electronics, specifically digital cameras and video-recording equipment, for Generac Power Systems Inc.
My primary role is to assist with the planning and implementation of research, with an eye to developing new consumer electronics that meet the needs of an ever more sophisticated public. I select the specific engineering technique to target a given problem, and I make sound design recommendations to the R&D team.
As a member of a larger team, my assignments generally represent one particular aspect of a larger project, but I am often called upon to develop special projects independently as needed. I am self-motivated and organized. I can dream up new and exciting features consumers will love, but I also know how to manage my time and to keep my work on budget and on time.
I should very much like to meet with you to further discuss my credentials. Would you please call me? I am available at (555)-555-5555 days, evenings and weekends. Thank you for this opportunity to introduce myself to you. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
