Subject: Passionate, highly technical XXX student for Peek software engineering position
To: Peek CTO
Dear Dan and the Peek team,
My name is XXX, and I am a XXX at XXX University with a very strong background in computer science. I received your job opportunity and contact information through the XXX mailing list, and I am very interested in either working and/or interning for Peek during the summer of 2012 and beyond.
I have attached my resumé to this email, which also includes a link to my GitHub in case you would like to see any work samples. When I program, I consider it not only a means of pursuing my passion, but also a means of fulfilling my responsibility to improve the quality of human life through technology. I feel that Peek embodies this paradigm, and I would love nothing more than to become a part of it. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me by cell at XXX or by email at XXX. Have a great rest of the week!
