Dear Mr. Culver,
I am a student of North Carolina College, pursing Bachelors in Computer Science. You had provided me your professional contact details for future reference, during the seminar on IT careers. I need your suggestion to choose the best job opportunity.
As an entry-level candidate, I do not have any relevant work experience, except internship experience at Delta Software. During my internship, I was part of the technical team who provided client support for any technical issue to software manufactured by Delta Software. Even though, I did not get much exposure to software programming, yet I got brief introduction to software industry and professional work environment.
Currently, I have two job offers through campus recruitment drive conducted at my college campus. First job offer is from Aegis Software Corporation for the post of trainee software developer in PHP and My SQL. Second job offer is from TSL Software for the post junior software programmer. TSL Software has not mentioned the software platform that I would have to work on. I need your guidance to choose the best job offer.
Thank you for going through my letter. I would request you for an appointment, so that I can clarify all my doubts related to these job offers and my future, after I join these companies. Please go through the enclosed resume, it will provide you additional details about my academic qualifications and programming proficiency. Thank you for your time.
