To whom it may concern:


I am writing to apply for the Java & Web Programmer position posted on handshake. After reading your job description, I am confident that my skills and my passion for technology are a perfect match for this position. I hope that I could be a member of the Canon team.

I am currently studying computer science major and planning to graduate in August 2016. I have experienced the required skill Java, JavaScript, JQuery, JSON and CSS which were posted on job description. Also, I have experience with C, assembly language and SQL. For your required skills of Java and JavaScript, I have had the opportunity to apply my skills through some projects I did like Journey through Europe Board Game and Sokoban Transport Puzzle with friendly user interface and AI functionality. Also, I created my own self-promotion website by applying the skill of html, JavaScript and CSS.

My technical, communicate and teamwork skills were enhanced by my Technical Support Analyst internship at EC Infosystem Company. I worked on Utilibill DashBoard project with a team of four to write queries for retrieving data from the database and design the charts in Excel to provide all data for UI team. I also gained experience to analyze, test production transactions and EDI file, investigate errors and processing issues and provide technical support to customers. I was a teaching assistant in Fall 2015 to assist students to finish lab exercise and homework for Computer Science I on Java, which enhanced my leadership skill. I believe these experiences have prepared me to be a contributing member of the Canon team.
