Dear Ms Simpson

Re: Linux systems administrator – Lotus Notes

I am writing to apply for the position of Linux systems administrator – Lotus Notes, as advertised on

I am an IT professional who brings extensive experience in database and network management, providing technical support and business solutions. My background encompasses consulting, implementation and support services, with a particular strength in project management. I have overseen the implementation of major technical upgrades and rollouts and have contributed to the development of numerous proposals and technical evaluations. Having worked across a range of platforms, I have honed my skills as an experienced Lotus Notes specialist and contractor.

A strategic and process-oriented thinker, I continually strive to streamline business practices and improve efficiency and outcomes. This is reflected in my proven track record of results, having successfully provided a workaround for one of the most costly problems facing ABC Technologies. After converting this into a permanent solution in collaboration with the Domino and IBM (Lotus) teams, I was recognised with a nomination for the TechTalk Excellence Awards.

I also possess a very strong understanding of business processes. I always keep my eye firmly trained on meeting client needs and providing the most appropriate technical solutions in a timely, professional and positive manner. My quick-thinking and can-do approach to problem-solving is a great asset that I would bring to the role of systems administrator in your team.

I possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills, working well with others and receiving repeated positive feedback from clients and management. I’m very much a team player but also have the ability to work independently and maintain accountability for my results and productivity, as well as lead and make decisions. To this effect, I have acted as a coach and mentor to many junior staff members in my previous roles.

I believe I would be a great fit for this position and I would love the opportunity to work with your team. My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.

Kind regards
