To Whom It May Concern:
As a recent graduate from Stanford University
with a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering with a focus
computer software, I am seeking the opportunity to explore the technology
field (Computer Software). A full-time position would provide an excellent
opportunity for me to contribute my knowledge.
In terms of experience, I believe I have
sufficient qualifications to allow me to add value to many companies.
I currently work at Plumtree Software, as a QA Engineer. I certify various
web applications, including web services, through a combination of automated
and manual testing. On the automated side, I write unit tests and testing
frameworks in Java (libraries used include JUnit, Apache SOAP, servlets)
to verify data coming in and out of various parts of the web applications
I am testing.
Before that, after my junior year of college,
I worked at AOL Time Warner at its Netscape campus in Mountain View. I
manner. My code had to scaleable, generalized, cross-platform, and internationalizable,
and I worked with the senior engineers in the group to achieve this result.
During the summer prior to my AOL experience, I worked at an Internet
startup called ePocrates, working on using webpages to access an Oracle
database, through Java servlets/JSP and JDBC. Since ePocrates, I have
also worked on other independent contractor projects using Java servlets.
At Stanford, I have taken a number computer
science classes which have given me an extensive knowledge of C, C++,
and Java. My classes included CS108, an OOP design course taught in Java,
and EE284, Introduction to Computer Networks. I’ve taken CS193W,
Windows Programming (MFC), and CS193I, Internet Technologies (Perl, CGI,
servlets, JSP). I am highly motivated, enthusiastic, and eager to learn.
During my past three years at Stanford,
I have been elected dorm president, dorm treasurer, and served as the
chief editor for our dorm yearbook. I was also editor of Innovation, the
weekly science and technology section of The Stanford Daily. I was an
officer for the Business Association of Stanford Engineering Students
(BASES) where I organized the E-Challenge workshops program. My job was
to recruit venture capitalists and industry leaders to speak at workshops
designed to help students prepare for the Entrepreneur’s Challenge,
a business-plan competition at Stanford. I believe that my technical expertise,
together with my strong interpersonal and communication skills as evidenced
by my involvement in dorm government, The Stanford Daily and BASES, are
great strengths for me.
I would be happy to do an interview to discuss
the possibility of full-time employment. If you require any further information
please do not hesitate to contact me. My references are available upon
request. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your consideration.
