Little Toy Blue is an engineering company started by several University of Michigan engineering graduates in 2006. Little Toy Blue specializes in designing and developing microprocessor-based toys: music synthesizers, interactive stuffed animals, video communicators, rhythm/music games, talking globes, interactive audio books, and similar products. Little Toy Blue recently opened a new division focusing on educational toys and is hiring new engineers for this division.
We are interested in the work you are doing with Dr. Brehob and believe the activities he has planned for the next few months will be excellent preparation for these products. Therefore, the memos, reports, and presentations you create this term will all be directed towards various departments within our company that are interested in tracking progress on this new line of products.
Your first assignment is to introduce yourself to the Little Toy Blue personnel director in a short two or three page letter. Little Toy Blue has hired you as a computer engineer who can potentially contribute to any of our projects, so focus on your background with computers and your goals for your engineering career. After reading your letter, the Little Toy Blue personnel director should have a good sense of your computer skills and experience, as well as your ideas, energy, and enthusiasm about engineering as a career.
