Sample Pharmaceutical Sales Representative Cover Letter
Ms. Jesica Fox
25th Lane Avenue, Old Road, Georgina
Dear Ms. Fox:
I would like to join the TopLine Pharmaceuticals team as your newest pharmaceutical sales representative. To give you confidence that I am the right person to interview, this letter anticipates your needs in the following areas:
|Your likely requirements:||My capabilities:|
|Strong sales experience.||Proven record in closing the most difficult kind of “sales”: persuading all my customers to give up their property at a reasonable price and avoid costly legal battles.|
|Ability to master steep learning curves in new fields.||Three years of handling rapidly increasing responsibility with absolutely no formalized training.|
|Dedication to reach tough goals independently.||Embarked upon a personal, professional development program to learn about your industry from pharmaceutical reps, professional organizations, and trade magazines.|
My résumé has the details. It may not look like others you have seen. I thought you deserved a good deal more than the usual unsupported summary of “professional qualifications,” standard job titles, and unfamiliar responsibilities. In their places are a half dozen profit-building capabilities I am ready to offer now, backed up by selected examples of performance.
If my approach and track record appeals to TopLine, I’d like to hear about your specific sales requirements. May I call in a few days to arrange a time to do just that?
