Hello, this is the first time that I post here. I wrote a motivation letter for CERN's Fellowship Programme. Could you check it please? It's the first motivation letter that I ever wrote, so an opinion about the content would be helpful too.
Thank you very much.



Dear Sir/Madam

I am writing to express my great interest in applying for CERN's Fellowship Programme, which I truly believe will help me in achieving the goals of my life: research and software development.

After having completed a BSc in Computer Engineering and a MScIT course, and spent some time working at Universidad de Zaragoza, I think it's time to move forward and start focusing on what I would want to be doing the rest of my life. I think this would be an unique opportunity to work as computer engineer in the most prestigious research center of the world.

I studied Computer engineering from 2002-2003, where I obtained a three years bachelor's degree, and in the last year I got an MScIT. I always liked Java programming, so I done a MScIT course focused in Java development using technologies such as J2EE and J2SE and databases design. My final project for the MScIT was a J2EE application for clinical centers, for which I got graduated with honours.

After graduation, I was invited to work as researcher for the Computer Department of Universidad de Zaragoza, where I worked on severals J2EE projects financed by Ministerio de Industria, Comercio y Transporte. On the development of theses projects, technologies like J2SE, Struts, AJAX, Comet and databases management systems like PostgreSQL and Oracle were used.

From 2007 to 2008, while I was still studying, I got a internship at CAI Mediacion de Seguros, working on databases maintenance and development of Business Intelligence tools in .NET environment. When my internship finished, CAI Mediacion de Seguros offered me continue my tasks as employee and I accepted.

I find CERN's Fellowship Programme quite exciting because the institution itself and the posibility of continue learning and working with the best scientist and engineers who would challenge me every day, and I am highly motivated about that. I completely sure that the knowledge and expertise that I could obtain with the Fellowship Programme will help in my life.

Yours sincerely,

Néstor Tomás.
