Mr. Samantha Drew
81, North 54 Street,
Clewiston, Florida, 03247,
Dear Mr. Drew:
As a former NFL football player, I was continually challenged to overcome adversity. In fact, my career began with rejection from college recruiters because of my size and lack of speed. Through persistence and a lot of hard work, I was not only drafted into the professional leagues, but also achieved recognition as the fastest receiver for the Washington Redskins. I was able to accomplish this by setting my own objectives to overcome any obstacle preventing me from playing ball.
Tenacity, competitiveness, team contributing, and goal setting were crucial qualities that drove my successful professional football career. It is with confidence and determination that I have applied these same qualities to excel in sales and account management and achieve both personal and company success.
The attached resume highlights my experience and proven ability to
- Increase revenues by bringing in new key clients, with minimal ramp-up time.
- Manage all aspects of the sales cycle from leads generation to negotiation to delivery.
- Penetrate and sign major national accounts by using strong relationship-building and creative problem-solving skills.
The opportunity to discuss with you personally how my demonstrated sales skills will contribute to the vision and success of Thomas Manufacturing will be greatly appreciated. I will contact you within the week to arrange for a convenient time to meet. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
