Dear Mrs Johns,

The advertisement for an Entry Level Computer Technician on 11 February was particularly appealing. I've enjoyed recently completing a computer hardware training course as well as four weeks of work experience and am eager to build on this experience.

Four subjects throughout my training were directly related to computer hardware theory. The subjects included 'PC architecture' where we looked at performance gains from 64bit architecture, 'Network Technologies' where we built and configured a Local Area Network, 'Operating Systems', where we explored drivers and OS troubleshooting tools and 'Web technologies' where we explored the business benefits of cloud computing.

This training complemented my work experience time in CompanyX Solutions Provider where I built PCs for customers. During this time I learned about the importance of Quality Assurance and Service Delivery. Despite my team leader recommending me for a temporary position, the company was not able to oblige at the time. I have attached a written reference and have provided contact details from this employer in my resume.

I look forward to finding similar employment to continue working hard and learning about the Computer Technician role. It is a career path that I am enthusiastic about and am naturally inclined towards.

Thank you for considering my application. I would welcome the opportunity to present myself at an interview and look forward to meeting you soon.
