Sample Sales Position Cover Letter
April 14, 2011
Attn: Human Resources
Shelconney Products, Inc.
1234 Main Court
I have taken the opportunity to enclose a copy of my résumé in application for the position you have advertised under Sales in The Guard. You will note from my résumé that I have cultivated an outstanding background in sales over the last few years. I have managed million-dollar accounts and have been highly successful in developing strong relationships.
Over the past six years, while I was at General Steel (a nonretail business), I developed accounts from cold calls to ongoing repeat-customer relationships with high-profile customers. I am professional and meet people well. You will find me to be highly disciplined and adaptable with the ability to tenaciously and tactfully “court” customers to their satisfaction, ultimately giving me and my company excellent success. I learn quickly, thoroughly enjoy a challenge, am selfmotivated with strong common sense, and do enjoy making money. I work well as a team member as well as independently.
It appears from your advertisement that your requirements and my qualifications may be a close match. I would like the opportunity to meet with you personally where we can discuss how we may further benefit each other. You may reach me easiest at my cell number, 555-555-5555.
Thank you for your time in reviewing my résumé, and I look forward to your call.
