Dear Sir/Madam,

This letter is an application for the position of Access Services Student Assistant. I am studying Computer Science in NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering.

I have a lot of experience with troubleshooting hardware and software programs as in my undergrad, I used to work as an assistant in the Computer Lab. I have also worked with Windows, Mac OS and Linux. I am very detail oriented and sincere with my work. I am also a very quick learner, so I can learn any new softwares very quickly.

My classes are in the evenings 6 – 8:30 PM on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I can work in the mornings from Monday to Friday and even on weekends.

I believe that I am qualified for this position because of my background as a Masters student in Computer Science and also because of the skills I possess.
