Front End Web Developer Cover Letter

Everything a website viewer sees and clicks on is the result of the work done by a Front End Web Developer. Different from website design, the main responsibility of a Front End Web Developer is to use programming languages and web coding such as JavaScript or HTML to create client-side software to make web design files accessible and user-friendly, such as images, links and other elements of a website. Front End Web Developers review user experiences and work to improve the function of a website. These professionals also maintain websites, test functionality and check for and fix bugs on the site that affect users.

The list below identifies common skills that are typically mentioned in a cover letter for those seeking employment as a Front End Web Developer:

  • Knowledge of scripting languages and frameworks
  • Troubleshooting abilities
  • Problem-solving skills
  • Creativity
  • Analytical and organizational skills
  • Multitasking
  • Time management

Take a look at the sample below to see how the above-mentioned skills and technical knowledge can be implemented into a Front End Web Developer cover letter.
