RE: Position as Pharmaceutical Sales Representative

Dear Staffing Representative:

I am submitting my résumé in application for the position of Pharmaceutical Sales Representative. I believe I am the ideal candidate for your consideration, not only because my qualifications match your requirements, but also because my strong network of contacts in the local/regional health care industry and ability to build strong relationships will enable me to increase sales growth and market share for your company.

My combination of healthcare experience, pharmaceutical product knowledge, and relationship selling skills has provided me the opportunity to deliver substantial revenue gains for the ABC Medical Center in Houston and develop solid, sustainable relationships with a broad cross-section of healthcare professionals throughout the Greater Houston area. Accomplishments that may be of interest to you include the following:

  • I spearheaded a revenue increase of $600,000 within the first month and $7.6 million in my first year as Director of the Cardiac Cath Lab at the ABC Medical Center.
  • I created a new computer program that ensured proper matches between physician and lab billing, producing significant savings and demonstrating my ability to pinpoint opportunities for profit growth.
  • I maintained an excellent record in pharmaceutical purchasing, serving as the sole point of contact for pharmaceutical sales representatives and playing a pivotal role in physician decisions.

My resume is enclosed to provide you with specific details concerning my qualifications and accomplishments, but perhaps a personal interview would more fully reveal my ability to contribute to your market share growth. I look forward to the possibility of such a meeting.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can answer any questions.


Mary Johnson Gray
