When I discovered the software engineering internship with XYZ Company on internships.com, I was excited by the opportunity to develop test cases, open bug reports, and triage test case failures. As a sophomore majoring in Computer Science at University College, I enjoy developing and improving testing technologies. My coursework, employment, and campus involvement have prepared me well for this position.
- Coursework. After completing courses in software development methods, programming languages, network systems, and embedded system design, my Major GPA is 3.8.
- IT Help Desk employment. As a student employee with IT services, I troubleshoot a wide variety of computing issues and communicate technical information to non-technical customers.
- Campus involvement. As a member of the Association for Women in Computing, I attend Tech Talks and conferences to expand my industry knowledge and network with full-time professionals.
My enclosed resume expands on my coursework, employment, and campus involvement. As I prepare for a career in computer science, I am dedicated to gaining practical experience to complement my coursework. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
