February 6, 2010
1234, West 67 Street,
Carlisle, MA 01741,
Dear Mr. Anderson:
I am writing to you in response to your need for a Sales Manager, as advertised in The New York Times, February 6, 2004. I fully believe my qualifications will meet or exceed your ideal candidate standards. With 17 successful years of experience in business sales, management, and customer service to my credit, I welcome the opportunity to discuss my qualifications for this opening in sales management with Avery Missile Design Systems. My positions as sales manager and supervisor have shown positive results in vastly increased sales volumes through reorganizing and rebuilding of staff, instituting powerful incentive programs, and implementing improved marketing procedures.
Experienced in-and undaunted by-challenging work environments, I am capable of assuming concurrent tasking responsibilities while effectively managing a staff with $6M in annual sales volume.
Additionally, during my seven years in customer service-the last five as supervisor-I have become adept at dealing with client concerns, resulting in higher sales figures and improved customer satisfaction. My training, experience, and rapid learning curve in using computers and various applications are borne out in my employment environments during my entire career. My technical background includes positions in operations support, software technical services, software manufacturing, programming, and technical writing. I hope you agree with me that this knowledge strengthens my candidacy for any sales management position requiring fast-paced storage and retrieval of information.
I would appreciate your contacting me to make an appointment at your earliest convenience to review my qualifications for this position, or another for which you may find me suitable. If I do not hear from you by February 15, I will contact your office to request an appointment suitable to your schedule.
Thank you for your consideration of my application for the position of Sales Manager with your firm.
