Dear Personnel Assistant:
I am writing in regard to your newspaper ad in the August 2 edition of the Austin American-Statesman concerning your need for a Programmer/Analyst III. I believe that I have the qualifications, experience, and enthusiam that you are looking for.
As for my work experience, I have been employed with two organizations over the past three years that have drawn on my computer-programming skills. My work at Loganis Mortgage Corporation involved the setup of new software, training of personnel, and the direct use of AutoCAD on a 10-user LAN. I worked as an assistant programmer at HydroLogics Corporation, doing much of the same design, code, and test work as the regular programmer/analysts.
In December, I will graduate with a Bachelor of Science from Southwest Texas State University. My overall grade point average is 3.125. In my degree program, I have studied and developed a thorough understanding of the following programming languages: Pascal, Assembler, COBOL, RPG, and C.
You will find enclosed with this letter a copy of my resume which provides a much more detailed description of my education and employment history. I would welcome any opportunity to talk with you further about the Programmer/Analyst position. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time at the numbers listed on my resume.
Jerry H. Fruend
