Dear Human Resources Manager,

I am writing in response to your advertisement on the Service Canada Local Job Bank Site, posted April 1, 2018, for a Computer Programmer.

Currently, I am pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Computer Sciences at the University of Guelph and will graduate this May. I have taken several courses in Computer Programming as part of my degree and feel confident of my ability to learn any design programs.

Through co-op placements I have one year of experience working in computer programming, research and design and have gained the practical and theoretical knowledge for which employers are looking. I enjoy challenging work, am hard working and perform well under pressure.

I am confident that my combined education and work experience would be an asset to your company. My enclosed resume further outlines my qualifications and I would like to meet with you for an interview to further discuss these. I can be reached at (519) 555-6789.
