Dear Sir or Madam:
I am a graduate student with MS degree of electrical engineering in North Carolina State University. I am here writing to express interest in this full-time job in your company. I learned about your organization through the career website of Dice. Your companyÃ‚â€™s leading technology and famous reputation impressed me a lot and makes me eager to know your company from within.
In my coursework, I was exposed to several core courses in circuits and multimedia. I have worked on several projects wherein I got hands on experience with hardware designs. Some of the notable projects were ‘Regular Expression Matching’ with throughput 1.6Gbits/sec in ASIC, 12-tap ‘Adaptive equalizer’ using Xilinx in DSP Architecture, designing the layout of 128 bit SRAM in 45nm using Cadence Tools virtuoso and ASIC verification project of pipelined LC3 processor.
After securing my Bachelor of Engineering in China, I worked in Siemens as test engineer. Siemens gave me good exposure to effective communication and working as a team globally. My colleagues and headquarters regard me as a motivated, quick learner, a good team player and an effective coordinator.
I believe that with my coursework and past work experience, I can make an immediate and effective contribution to your company. If you need any more information about me, please feel free to contact me.
