Dear Ms. Willson:
This letter is in response to your advertisement for the position of Sales Representative. Having developed strong business skills in sales and marketing, I am currently pursuing a new challenge with an organization such as yours. Please review the enclosed resume, which provides an overview of my careerrelated experiences and accomplishments.
You are seeking an individual with strong prospecting and cold-calling experience. For the past three years, I have been recognized for turning 85% of my cold calls into customers. I have grown existing business more than 25% in the past 18 months. I have in-depth industry knowledge and pride myself on my ability to develop loyal business relationships with decision makers at all levels of an organization. My strengths include learning and applying selling methodologies, financial analysis, and accurate reporting. All of these skills are transferable to any industry or environment.
If you are currently seeking an individual with a “can-do” attitude who is focused on developing new business, increasing sales, achieving corporate goals, and exceeding customer expectations, we should meet. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss how I could become a contributing member of your sales and marketing team. Please contact me at 327-354-8956.
