Cover Letter for IT Assistant Resume

Although an IT Assistant cover letter claims extra effort on the part of candidate but it does pay off since it provides the candidate with a chance to explain the enclosed resume. The resume in itself is a complete document but it cannot perform the function a cover letter performs.

Use your cover letter to explain what it is about the particular position that draws your attention and how you believe your qualifications can compliment it? It is your chance to convince the employer that they need you. Communicate your potential effectively.

Dear Mr. Alfred:

The other Saturday I received a rather unusual call from a client asking if I could restore a massive database out of a malware infected and repeatedly Trojan attached system while retrieving the complete data? I am proud to say that I could and I did it in mere two hours’ time! File recovery and troubleshooting is my speciality and I’m good at providing all kinds of IT assisstance.

After going through your job advertisement in detail I strongly believe that you are seeking a person with my profile and experience to fill the vacancy of IT assistant at Technology Solutions. My resume is enclosed for consideration.

Some of my IT related expertise is highlighted below to facilitate your review of my profile:

• Experienced in network installation and configuration
• Well versed in software installation, troubleshooting and setting
• In depth knowledge of various operating systems and supporting hardware installations
• Adept at troubleshooting Microsoft based operating systems and applications
• Well practiced in website development and maintenance
• MCSE and CCNA certified

In addition I am adept at performing testing activities on various systems, peripherals and computer network systems a requirement that you have specifically mentioned in your job advertisement.

I’d appreciate an opportunity to further discuss how Technology solutions could benefit from my technical IT assistance expertise. Please call me now to communicate an interview date to facilitate the same. I also intend to call you in a couple of days to clarify any queries you might have regarding my qualifications.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sincere regards,
