(Today's Date)

Dear (Mr/Ms/Miss Name (you should be able to find this out)),

I'm writing to enquire whether you have a vacancy in your Company for a Technology Engineer. I enclose a copy of my resume for your consideration.

As you will see from my resume, I am currently working for ABC Limited as a Desktop Support Technician. In this role, I'm responsible for identifying and resolving hardware and software issues for over 200 users across 3 sites.

This requires excellent technical skills as well as the ability to deal effectively with all levels of staff across all Departments. The need to work to strict timescales and adhere to established procedures is also crucial.

I am interested in joining your Company because I believe it offers the opportunity to broaden my skills and experience. I have heard that your Company offers good training and good prospects and that employees enjoy working for you.

I believe my experience can help your Company achieve its objectives and hope you agree.

I would be grateful if you would contact me for an interview if you have any relevant vacancies in your Company.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely
