Dear Hiring Manager:

Success in sales is about people, persistence, and performance!

As a sales representative with proven skills and strong sales accomplishments, I am confident my qualifications and experience will be of interest to you. Characteristics that have contributed to my success are...

  • Meticulous attention to customer service and follow-up.
  • Energy, enthusiasm, and motivation.
  • Excellent planning, time-management, and organizational skills.
  • Ability to perform effectively in a fast-paced atmosphere.

The enclosed resume summarizes more than 17 years of experience in both business and consumer environments. In each of my previous positions I have quickly attained sales results and established a loyal customer base. I am very proficient in all stages of the sales process—from the cold call to a signature on the contract. The process begins with building rapport with my clients and continues by delivering the extra effort necessary to achieve the goals of all concerned...a “win-win” situation.

My selling skills are complemented by equally strong creative abilities. I am able to work with people to generate ideas that work. My goal is to become a key contributor on your professional sales team and help you meet your overall objectives in any way I can.

Although secure in my present position, I am interested in a more challenging opportunity. It will be a pleasure to meet with you in a confidential interview to discuss my credentials in detail. I am available for a personal interview at your earliest convenience. Please feel free to contact me at either telephone number listed above.

Thank you for your consideration.


John Harrison
