I am applying for a Cyber Security Associate position at Company Z. After reviewing the job description and your company’s objectives, I believe that I would be able to contribute by providing your company with my strong analytical and technical skills.
My interest in Cyber Security developed during my part-time internship at Company B, where I was able to apply my knowledge of information technology to test and maintain the security of its computer systems. I was responsible for providing on-site technical and systems engineering expertise on network-based devices and developing/implementing solutions to complex issues. My duties included configuring, managing, and maintaining checkpoints firewall appliances, Bluecoat proxy servers, Cent/OS intrusion detection servers, and various other devices. My thorough knowledge of these products allowed me to ensure that all managed devices complied with Department of Defense security technical implementation guides and standards.
Through my internship, I developed an in-depth understanding of the importance of security and how to prevent unauthorized access to the company’s computer systems. I was able to use my knowledge to ensure that all security-related tasks were completed in a timely manner and to the highest standard. I believe that my knowledge of network security and my desire to complete tasks to the highest standard will contribute to the company’s needs and objectives.
I am confident that my strong technical, analytical, and interpersonal skills will be beneficial to your Cyber Security department. I hope you will give me the opportunity to discuss my interest in the Cyber Security position with you further. Thank you for your consideration.
