Dear [Recipient Name]:
A mutual acquaintance, David Jaffe, recommended that I contact you regarding a possible sales opportunity with
Fabrikam, Inc. I have taken the liberty of enclosing my resume for your review. Thank you in advance for your
I now realize that I have been missing my calling. I am a strong sales professional with solid technical skills, but
I have not been selling technical products. As sales manager for Contoso, Ltd., I must have sent two dozen
people to your company to purchase your cellular phone (and they bought it!), after they saw the slick phone that
I use, which I purchased from you.
Now here’s the irony: I get more excited promoting your phones than I have ever gotten from promoting
anything I’ve ever sold, and I’ve been successful in all my sales endeavors. This is why I would like to pursue a
sales position with Fabrikam, Inc.
I have more than 20 years of successful sales experience. I offer you the following:
A strong closer; excellent cold-canvassing and market development skills
A professional demeanor
A strong network of contacts
Enthusiasm and high energy
Although my resume is quite detailed, it cannot fully profile the manner in which I have been successful. This
can only be accomplished in a face-to-face meeting where we can exchange information and examine whether
there might be mutual interest. I will call you in the coming week to arrange an interview. Again, I thank you for
your time and consideration, and I look forward to meeting with you soon.
