Dear Staffing Representative:
It was with great interest that I noted your advertisement for the position of Systems Administrator. I believe I am the ideal candidate for your consideration, with qualifications correlated to your requirements. Thus, please allow me to explain briefly how I might contribute to your firm's operational performance.
Throughout my career, my expertise has been in providing systems integration solutions for multimilliondollar clients. As a Senior Systems Integrator for IBM, I have instituted technology assimilations and changes for our clients that produced cost savings and positioned them for success in their respective markets. I would now like to use my systems management and integration skills to help your company maintain a strong customer base and improve productivity.
Additionally, my background in help desk administration, project management, and IT applications could benefit your firm in specific need areas. I enjoy being a diverse "team player" within an organization and contributing to my employer's success in various capacities.
To provide you with details concerning my qualifications and accomplishments, my resume is enclosed. I will contact you next week to follow up on this letter of inquiry; perhaps we could arrange a meeting to discuss our mutual interests.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can answer any questions.
