Ms. Helena Chang
My name is XYZ and I am applying for the Junior Software Engineer position in Company Z’s Engineering team. I am very enthusiastic about this opportunity because your company has one of the best reputations in the industry for being a leader in the application of cutting edge technologies in the health-technology space.
My interest in software engineering has been fostered by my work experience as a Software Engineer Intern at Company A. I designed an application that streamlined communication between doctors and patients in an effort to provide patients with accurate and prompt information regarding their health care. The application was created with AngularJS, a technology that allowed me to build a clean and straightforward user interface. I also used Tailwind, a CSS framework that provided a consistent look and feel while allowing me to easily create a responsive UI. Using Microsoft’s Cognitive Services, I developed a translation service that allowed the application to translate between languages and supported a “next word prediction” service, which enabled users to input text that a computer would be able to understand, regardless of how the user typed.
I believe the skills I’ve developed, both at work and at university, demonstrate that I am dedicated to my work and have the potential to become an important part of your team. I would be honored to work for a company that I admire and believe that my demonstrated technical skills and my ability to work with people from a diverse range of backgrounds will prove to be an asset.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
