Dear Mr. Morris:

Thank you for taking the time to talk with me about sales positions at MedMark Pharmaceuticals, following Dr. Nathan’s referral.

As a sales professional for 15 years, I have achieved substantial success in driving revenue growth and expanding business in the competitive security industry. My talent for building long-term relationships has been key to my success. For example, I garnered accounts with major corporations, such as Sears, largely through referrals, and created a national distributors’ network through contacts that I developed and nurtured.

I firmly believe that I could achieve the same results-or better-for MedMark. Over the past several years I have developed a passion for the medical field, which is at the heart of my decision to transition my qualifications into pharmaceutical sales. I have already established strong relationships with a number of medical practitioners, learned some of the ins and outs of the medical system, and thoroughly researched several drugs, resulting in a new appreciation for their role in people’s lives and in the clinical setting.

Dr. Nathan and several other physicians I know agree that I have what it takes to make an impact in the pharmaceutical field. The enclosed résumé will give you an idea of what I could do for MedMark. I would like to meet with you to discuss the contribution I can make as part of your sales team. I will call you within the next several days to schedule an interview.

Thank you in advance for your consideration. I look forward to speaking with you again soon.


Mary Smith
