Model Answer
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to submit my application for the Middle-Level Java Developer position advertised on 5th July 2012.

Starting with my academic record which includes having at the end of May 2012 with a Master of Computer Science, from Monash University. I achieved consistent results which reflect my hard work and determination to work. My major in Software Development is also a good fit for this position.

As for my work history, I have worked for more than 2 years at HighSoft, a leading software company, where I participated in a range of Java projects to create web-based solutions for clients. As the company caters for a range of different industries, I can guarantee that I have excellent technical skills.

Another reason why I believe I am a good fit for the role that you advertised is that I am a very flexible person who is willing to travel to the client and other branches of the company in order to achieve the best result.

I appreciate your time and consideration of my application.
Yours faithfully,
