To Mr. Washington:

I am sending this letter, enclosed resume and CD-Rom portfolio in response to your advertisement for an Entry Level Web Designer as posted at CareerCrib.com. I am well trained in the technical aspects of web design and have a keen sense of page layout that will help contribute to your creative team immediately. My experience and skills include:


  • Advanced software knowledge of Dreamweaver, Flash, Director, Cold Fusion, Imageready, Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks.
  • Hand coding and proficiency in HTML, XHTML, CSS and JavaScript.
  • A basic understanding with some experience in ASP, PHP, MySQL and server side scripting.
  • Possess a great sense of designing skills including training in typography, color theory and composition.


As demonstrated in my enclosed digital portfolio, my experience includes a diverse sample of web based projects that include web animation designed in Flash, e-commerce design and implementation of basic server side scripting with customized Bulletin Boards and creation of email databases. I am capable of working as a member of a team or individually. Additionally, I am eager to learn and pick up new concepts fast with great efficiency.


I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to interview with you. I will call you next Wednesday to confirm that you received this letter and answer any questions you may have.
