Dear Mr. Hudson:


Sandra Smith recommended that I forward my résumé to you concerning a Sales Representative position with your company. Although currently employed as Director of Sales at Home Market, Inc., I am pursuing my long-time goal: a career in the pharmaceutical industry. FEATURES

I offer Merkx a unique background of successful experience in sales and science, with natural relationship-building and selling skills and an innate fascination for science as related to health care. My 13-year track record is characterized by consistent bottom-line contributions, exceeding sales quota, and proactive problem-solving initiatives.


I am familiar with and impressed by your company’s selling and marketing strategies, and I would welcome the opportunity to join your team and increase sales by leveraging the following:

  • Communication, negotiation, and closing skills-I generated $4 million in sales for Home Market’s merchants in a year.
  • Ability to build trust and rapport instantly-I penetrated challenging territory, signing 25 merchants in three months, exceeding quota of 10.
  • Customer service and client-retention skills-96% customer satisfaction rate. Handle full sales and customer service cycle.
  • Tenacity, determination, and follow-through-commended by vendors/partners for persistence, leading to contracts.
  • Entrepreneurial, self-motivated mentality-launched direct marketing initiatives. Pursued clients through networking presentations, cold calling, and account-management efforts.
  • Energy and enthusiasm about product benefits to clients.


Please note that I am fluent in Spanish and willing to travel or relocate.


A personal meeting would be a great way for us to discuss your sales challenges and the benefits I can bring to Merkx. I can make myself available at your convenience and will call you next week to schedule an appointment.
