Dear Mr. Smith,
I recently graduated from Comp Technical Institute with a Computer Programming Certificate representing 350 hours of IT studies. Jason White, who also graduated from this course and is currently employed with your company, tells me that Jimpsom is seeking IT professionals with up-to-date programming skills. I believe I am just the person you are seeking!
With advanced training in Java and C++, I possess the communication and problem-solving skills to design and troubleshoot virtually any software. As you will see on my enclosed resume, I have more than 10 years of experience in office positions that required extensive computer use and have a firsthand knowledge of the needs of the end user. Previous supervisors have described me as patient and logical.
I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you further about a future role at Jimpsom. I will call you at the end of this week to ensure that you received this letter and to answer any questions that you may have. In the meantime, feel free to contact me at (222) 222-2222. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
