Re: Senior Java Programmer Position
The Senior Java Developer position that was recently advertised online is of great interest to me.
I have 4 years experience in internet development, specialising in java applications. My experience includes front-end and back-end development and I am very comfortable with database design, SQL queries, even database optimisation. This experience has been obtained from working with corporations in various industry sectors such as education, finance, telecommunication and government bodies.
Furthermore, I am currently enrolled in a Masters in Information Technology and also graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Science in 2000.
With my extensive work experience and educational qualifications, I believe that the position on offer is well suited for me and that it will provide a challenging working environment that I will enjoy.
I consider myself a professional team player and take great pride in my work. I believe I would be a future asset to your organisation.
