 Dear Mr Smith

 I am very interested in becoming a game developer in your company, I found this on your main website and it caught my eye. I have been looking around other companies for a while now and finally have found my dream job. I have always wanted to work for this company. I am available to start work whenever it fits best for you but as a warning I am going to college after summer, so it would be better to work part time until I go onto the second year of my course.

I am very interested in this post because I’ve always wanted to work for a big company like yours, also I have enjoyed so many of your games and have had so many great ideas on how they can be more fun to play, this is the main reason why I want to be a game developer, to make something the community will remember and will enjoy.

My strengths are Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, After Affects, and a basics of Cinema 4D, I also understand how to use Unreal Engine and a bit of coding, this will be an advantage to your company mainly because I know a bit of everything and can be adaptable for any situation, if you need someone to help on animating then Photoshop I will be able to do both, also I am still learning so if there is a problem that no one knows I will be able to look it up and fix it. I’ve had many problems with After Affects but I have learnt from my mistakes.

I am available whenever for an interview but if anything does happen I will let you know as soon as possible. Thank you for reading this letter and I will be looking forward to be hearing from you soon.

 Yours sincerely

Sam Swift
