Dear …………,

I have always wanted to work for your company as a Database Administrator and was delighted to see the recent job advert on the website.

I come to you as someone who has extensive knowledge of database architecture and experience of database usage in relation to user accounts, sensitive information, statistical data, and client records.

After reading your job description I feel I would be a perfect match for your position because of my ability to ensure that all installations, upgrades, and change approaches are clearly defined, configured and documented and successfully delivered to time and specification. Additionally, you can rely on me to achieve cost savings where possible.

I also want to point out my proven record operating as a DBA in a mature and busy environment.
This is no short measure due to my advanced knowledge of database security, backup and recovery, and performance monitoring standards.

Recently I have been working for …………. where I am responsible for the technical design, implementation, and support of database related services. As part of my duties, I am in charge of a very large database (VLDB) that contains unstructured data types such as images, documents, or sound and video files.

With over 5 years of experience behind me, I now have knowledge of industry best practices, and can take the necessary precautions to preserve data and identify potential weaknesses.

Aside from my above competencies, I have a strong sense of ownership and take pride in my performance and its impact on company’s success.

Right now, I am looking to secure a position with a company like yours that has a meritocratic environment that demonstrably rewards value-driven professionals.

If required, I can provide you with excellent references from my current and previous employers. I hope that the information contained in this letter and the attached resume will assist my application and encourage you to invite me to an interview.

Yours sincerely,
