Dear Ms. Frances Gamboa,
I am writing with regard to the posting for the position of Tester, for which I would like to submit an application for employment. You will find enclosed my resume and references, which I’m sure will convince you I am a superior candidate for the job.
With five years of experience as a quality assurance tester in software and console gaming industries, I have all the skills needed to test games for proper functioning and performance, playability, and hardware and software compatibility. I am qualified to execute and report on the status of tests. I also have experience assisting in the development of test scenarios and test cases, and in risk management.
I am a university educated professional, with a bachelor of science in software design. I have extensive knowledge of testing management tools such as HP Quality Center and QMetry, as well as a mastery of Microsoft Office applications such as Word and Excel, used for generating reports. I possess all the skills required to perform testing of pre-release versions of games, to work with vendors on patch deployment, and to conduct regulatory testing to ensure games meet regulatory standards.
Because game testing is a cooperative effort, I am sure you need employees who can work well in a team. I take pride in establishing cooperative relations with my coworkers, and in maintaining a very high level of communication that fosters teamwork.
As you can see, I am a candidate of superior calibre and experience who would be an excellent addition to your testing team. I look forward to hearing from you to discuss the position further. You can reach me by calling (555)-555-5555.
