Re: Application for the position of a QA Tester
I have come to know through my neighbor and your customer-care executive, Ronald Hanley that there is one position existing for a QA tester in your organization. Since I have waited long enough for this opportunity to arise as I have a strong desire to work with your development team, please consider this cover letter as an application for the same.
I am a graduate of the Angel Technical Institute where I have learned the nuances of software testing. After graduating in 2005 from this prestigious Institute, I started my stint in this interesting yet challenging field with KYC Technologies. My company specializes in developing software for accounting, logistics, inventory management, and weather forecasting.
I started as a QA Test Support Associate and soon caught the attention of my senior through my logical and analytical skills. My hard work and preservation subsequently paid off, and I was promoted as a QA Tester in a matter of two years. Since then, I have been an integral part of the development team and have many projects to display in my repertoire. You will have a detailed understanding of the nature of work I did through my attached resume.
I am flexible in working in any team environment and bears the stamina to sit and work for long hours. My organization and communication skills are some of the few highlights about my credentials. I enjoy finding and preventing bugs so that the end-user can work on the application without any trouble.
My strength includes professionalism, analysis, logics, initiative and agility. I can come for an interview for further discussion if informed 48 hours early. This will allow me to intimate my superiors about my leave. I am expecting a positive response, and hope to meet you soon. Thank you for your time.
