2. Cover letter example for QA expert to work directly with developers

Hello

- I am very friendly and have great communication skills (I worked along, with developers, with UX engineers, within QA teams). I know how to establish contact with different people and work with them without conflicts.

- I am very polite and always constructive. I know how to describe bugs, so the team members can easy reproduce it.

- I am always online, so no problem with timezone with your developers, I can contact them when it is more comfortable for them

- I can do installation testing (I did it for mobile and desktop app), smoke and sanity (if you familiar with such type), acceptance, functional, black, white, loading (using JMeter) and even unit test (on PHP only)

- I am not only can do testing, but also I can check usability and WGAC;

3. Cover letter example for QA/Tester - jMeter expert

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • QA & Testing
Hi

I am an expert in Jmeter, but unfortunately cannot understand how it is possible to estimate work without knowing application functionality.

But if to generalize, then the loading testing process looks like this:
- specify what pages/functionality are critical and vulnerable for high loading. As rule these are most visited pages and payment/shipping/processing pages
- specify what is min/average and maximum amount of visitors/requests
- specify what steps should be passed to reach the page under loading - for example, the tested page is a page which opens with GET/POST parameters like 'all=yes';
- specify if testing must be done under particular user profile and with/without cookies
- write scenarios and test them - to be sure that they work properly
- run test in working mode for min/average and maximum values, gradually analyzing the results.
- correct scripts if need and check test again.
- use any scheduler to run test periodically for testing or production environment.
- control results and provide them to a development team

Complete the steps above for each project.

Very rough estimate for applying the steps above for standard e-commerce web will take ~  10-16h +/-30%. If you hire me to do this, so my hourly rate is $13/hr.

If you going to start this next 1-2 weeks then I will be available ~10h/week, later depends on other offers which I consider right now.

Have a good day, sir!

Best regards, Peter

However, I have not have experience with such device yet and I am so excited to be part of your team - because possibility of this device are unlimited.

I remember time when we launched very important project and no one could catch a phantom bug. I advised to do loading test and check if this bug is a reason of overloading some variables. Using JMeter I emulated 1mln operations and yes, finally my supposition helped to run project in time.

I am so excited to get this job, because 2 months ago I did testing of custom app: Alarm and Timer.
