Subject: (logical to recipient!) Inquiry about software engineering position for B.Tech. in Computer Engineering

March 12, 2010

Mr. Rohit Marwah
HR Head,

Talent Acquisition,
Software Corporation,
1234, Gurgaon, Haryana 111122




Dear Sir,

This is with reference to the Software Engineer requirement at Software Corp. I learned of this position through a mail from a job consultant firm (or though a newspaper advertisement dated dd/mm/yyyy). I will complete my B.Tech. in Computer Engineering in May 2010. From my research on your web site, I believe my skills and interests would fit your company's needs. I am interested in Software Engineering position in the products division upon completion of my degree.

As a graduate student, I am one of 5 members on a software development team in which we are writing a computer-aided submarine design program. My responsibilities include designing, coding, and testing of a graphical portion of the program which requires the use of ZX-WWG for graphics input and output. I have a strong background in CAD, computer graphics, software development, and engineering, and believe that these skills would benefit the designing and manufacturing aspects of template software.  Enclosed is my resume with further background information.

My qualifications equip me to make a contribution to the project areas in which your products division is expanding efforts.  I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss a position with you, and would be happy to answer any information you might need from me.  Thank you for your consideration.
