My name is §õ°ê°¶;
my English name is David. I am applying for the vacancy of the JUNIOR
NETWORK PROGRAMMER which you advertised on the Employment Web Page of
I hold a bachelor's
degree with a major in Economics which was awarded to me by Fu-Jen University
in Taipei in 1997. Although I am a novice in the workforce, I am qualified
for this position according to the requirements which were described
in your advertisement. First, I have good command of English, because
my university minor subject was English. Moreover, my TEFL test scores
were 600. These two facts provide the evidence that I have a quite adequate
command of English to work in an international company like yours.
computer science is not my major subject at the university, the courses
I have taken like Data Management, C-Language and Calculus have prepared
me for software programming in the field of finance and investment.
My grades in these three courses were all above 80. In addition to my
computer programming, I was employed at the university's computer center
where I assisted the instructors in teaching students how to search
web sites on the internet, and how to send e-mail messages by using
Outlook software. Moreover, I helped students design their web page
by familiarizing them with both PowerPoint and Front Page software.
Third, I was not
only active in the university but also a participant in a 1998 International
Conference of Web Technology Development in Taiwan. The experience brought
me into contact with professional societies and helped me improve my
social skills when interacting and communicating with professional people.
This experience also taught me how to work with people efficiently.
As far as my private
life is concerned, I am from a middle-class nuclear family which is
composed of four members: my parents, my younger sister and I. My father
is a businessman who deals with international trade. My mother used
to work in a bank, but she retired recently. My sister studies nursing
and she is going to work in a hospital. My family life is calm and steady.
My parents love their children and hold great expectation that their
children can establish their own career independently and live a happy
life. Fortunately, up to now I have not disappointed them. I have completed
my required military service as an airforce sergeant. My hobbies include
movies, music and sports. I am an enthusiastic, initiative and interesting
person although I can be straightforward and not very prudent in complicated
situations. However, I learn from experience quickly.
I can confidently
say that I am ready for my future. But I am looking for a good opportunity
in which I can make a contribution to the welfare of the company which
I will work for. Along with this experience, I hope to develop myself
to keep pace with the changes of the era in my profession.
