Mr. John H. Augustus
General Electric Company
Schenectady, NY 12345
Dear Mr. Augustus:
Your advertisement in the Networking Careers Online encouraged me to contact you about entry-level positions in programming at General Electric. The Corporate Systems Program at your company interests me greatly because it seems to offer opportunities in Electronic Data Processing. l will receive my Bachelor's degree in June XXXX from Queens College and hope that we will have an opportunity to discuss possible employment after that time.
In addition to the broad knowledge I have obtained from a diverse and substantial curriculum, I have completed two highly rated self-study projects and acted as assistant to the departmental chairperson. My part-time work experience at American Business Machines has given me on the job experience and helped me to develop my skills in several computer languages.
Enclosed, you will find my resume that further details my qualifications. l am willing to meet with you for an interview at your convenience. Thank you for your time and consideration. With your permission, I will call your office next week to learn more about the application process.
