It was with great interest that I noted your advertisement for a position within your IT section. 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 IT section.

Throughout my career, my expertise has been in providing IT Support and Helpdesk solutions.

I would now like to use my IT Administration and Service Delivery skills to help your company enhance its IT functions and processes.

Additionally, my background in Helpdesk administration, project management, and IT applications could benefit your firm in specific need areas.
