A lot of recruiters and HR managers are looking for cover letters when they are looking to hire someone. Cover letters give you a chance to express your interest in the job, as well as highlight any qualifications you have that make you suitable for the job.
Below is an example of a cover letter showing how your experience makes you suitable to work as a desktop software developer remotely.
Strong track record of working remotely
Dear [recruiter name],
I'm excited to apply for the Remote Desktop Software Developer position at [company name]. My experience using the technologies listed in the job description has been instrumental in my ability to deliver value to clients across a range of industries. I also have a strong track record of working remotely and would be honoured to join your team.
When I am asked to work on a project, I always start by reviewing the goals and objectives of the project. From there, I create a plan that outlines what needs to be done, how long it will take, and who will do it. After outlining my plan, I meet with key stakeholders to review my plan and get feedback. Finally, I make sure everyone involved has a clear understanding of what's expected by sharing copies of project documentation or presentations with them before moving on to the next stage of development.
I am available Monday through Friday from 9 am until 5 pm PST (UTC-8) during normal business hours. If you'd like more information about my availability or my home office setup please let me know!
Can handle any task from coding to project management
I have a long history of working in the remote desktop software development industry. I began as a junior developer, then moved up to team lead and eventually became an architect. I've worked with large corporations, small companies and even solo developers. I've been around the block, so to speak. My skills are well-rounded and I can handle any task you give me—from coding to project management.
My work plan is simple: work hard and make sure the job gets done right. I'm not afraid of hard work; in fact, I thrive on it! But if you want an employee who will be happy with mundane tasks and will never rock the boat or push back on anything, then this isn't the right fit for us. However, if you want someone who will be honest about their goals, and has the skills needed to get the job done quickly and effectively (while maintaining quality), then I am your guy!
I am available 24/7 via Skype (or another messaging service) and can work from home as well as remotely from a coffee shop or library if need be.
