POSITION:

Database administrator


Database administrator with flair for IT and attention to detail is on the way!
My name is .... and I would like to apply for the database administrator position that was
advertised on jobindex.dk.
I am a new graduate of IT University of Copenhagen, with a degree in Databases and I look forward to
getting to work with data processing, management and big databases.
My motivation to apply for this position is that my degree have provided me with a broad knowledge of
databases and I got accustomed to work with them. I would like to work in an environment where I can
use and improve the skills I got trained for.
During my time as a student, I acquired knowledge in designing and implementing databases based on
the relational model and programming complex queries in SQL.
In particular, one of the courses I undertook, Database Tuning Project, involved analyzing the
performance impact of design choices within a database system ( indexing, query optimization,
concurrency control and recovery) and designing and executing experiments to evaluate a data
management system performance. During the project I used IBM DB2 as a back-end database server.
Furthermore, by undertaking the course Big Data Management, I worked with school assignments that
involved data processing and entry tasks. I also became familiar with NoSQL databases, especially
MongoDB which I used in my school assignments.
In addition, I am an experienced user of Excel that I used in some of my school assignments.
As a person, I am systematic, patient and I always strive to ensure the quality of the work I do.
I look forward to a personal interview, where I will have the possibility to hear more about the job and elaborate on my competences.
Sincerely,
