Dear Mr Johnson
Re: Development Engineer
I would like to apply for the post of Development Engineer as advertised in the May issue of Electronics Today. Please find enclosed my CV with the names of two referees.
I consider I am well qualified for this post. I will soon complete my master’s degree in Electronics and will be available for employment from the end of January. My university work has been good and I have completed all my modules successfully to date.
I have working knowledge of CAD software. I also have experience in providing leadership within development team by setting up goals, plans and execution monitoring. In my previous work I have also conducted engineering analysis of the test results to assess system performance, drawn conclusions and made recommendations for design improvements. I feel confident that my work experience, together with my university qualification, make me well suited for the post.
I have a clean driving license and enjoy good health.
I look forward to hearing from you.
