    Cover Letter Sentence Grammar Question

    Hey Guys, I am currently writing cover letters for jobs, and I have created a somewhat bizarre sentence. I do not know if it is correct, I would appreciate any help. Thanks for you time

    "Upon researching on Digital Dispatch Taxi Book solutions, I discovered that we have similar product philosophies; Designing complete easy to use solutions."

    Ps: I don't know whether that scary semi colon is being used properly, I usually try getting the hell away from them.

    Re: Cover Letter Sentence Grammar Question

    The semicolon here is not used properly. I would eliminate the semicolon and change a few words in your statement. Something like this might be better:
    "In my research about Digital Dispatch Taxi Solutions, I discovered that we have a similar product philosophy: Solutions should be complete and easy-to-use."
    Best wishes...

    Thank you for your prompt response, don't think my job search would be going as well as it is if it wasn't for the help I have been receiving from this community, I am very grateful.
