Hiring Agent, Title
Dear Hiring Manager:
Perhaps you are seeking a promising, hardworking recent college graduate with a background in marketing and sales for a position within your company. As a creative, energetic individual with excellent communications skills and a pleasant, accommodating manner, I believe I offer the right combination of skills to be just that person.
As you can see from my enclosed résumé, I recently graduated from Midwest University with a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing. I totally enjoy my current position as a sales assistant, where I am well liked by my manager and readily given the opportunity to learn and grow. However, I plan to move to Connecticut in the near future and hope to find an equally rewarding position in my new location.
While attending college, I worked in a variety of positions in marketing, sales and administration. In all of these positions, I quickly earned a reputation as a professional, conscientious worker with excellent customer-relations skills. In addition, I am known as someone who is driven to get things done.
Among my other strengths, I have good research skills and solid marketing and advertising instincts. As a fast learner with a large capacity for growth and development, I am confident that, with these skills and traits to offer, I will prove to be an asset to your company.
I would be pleased to have the opportunity to discuss future employment and look forward to speaking with you soon. Feel free to contact me at the address and phone number listed above.
Thank you for your consideration.
Mary Johnson Gray
