Professional Summary

Hello TecAce,

I recently came across your company and learned about your positive work culture which I value highly. I was impressed with the wide range of Multiplatform app development solutions the company was behind. It made me think, “I really want to work with these people that are motivated and passionate about taking on unfamiliar projects and delivering solutions for big clients.” I’m excited to hear what it takes to bring all those brilliant ideas to life.

I am a self-taught developer currently working as a dental hygienist. I first started programming every night as a means to take up challenges and solve algorithms since my job position doesn’t give me that satisfaction. The more programming challenges I overcame, the more I fell in love with this field. I am very self-motivated and looking to learn and grow as a developer.

I believe with my dedication, work ethic and passion for software development, I will be a valuable addition to your development team. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you and discuss how I can bring positive contributions to your organization.

Yours sincerely,

Ryan Kim
