Mr. Claude Closer Vice President for Sales & Marketing Sunshine Industries, Inc. 1234 Seminole Boulevard Orlando, Florida 33333

Dear Mr. Closer:

Capitalizing on close to six years of experience in sales and management roles with customer-oriented organizations, I am seeking an opportunity in a corporate setting where my capabilities can further your business objectives, while offering career development opportunities. With this goal in mind, I have enclosed for your consideration a resume outlining my experience.

Some key points you may find relevant to a sales, marketing, and/or management trainee role with your firm include

  • Selling capital equipment to business and government accounts, including developing long-term, consultative relationships with customers.
  • Supporting sales operations by developing specifications, responding to competitive bid requests, and managing a variety of vendor-relations functions.
  • Managing capital projects, including $500K and $750K renovations of restaurant facilities, as well as the assembly/fabrication of custom equipment for municipal highway departments.
  • Providing leadership to groups of up to 24 customer service employees in retail and hospitality business environments, including recruiting and training team members.

I am convinced that my skills can contribute to your ongoing business success, and that my professional development can significantly benefit from joining a leading organization such as yours. I would enjoy speaking with you in person about potential opportunities and ways that I can address your needs. I will be visiting Orlando the week of May 21st and would be pleased to meet with you during that time. Please contact me to arrange an initial interview.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to talking with you soon.
