Dear Ms Jones
Please accept the enclosed resume as my application for your sales position which you advertised last
week on the www.dayjob.com website. I am applying because I believe I meet all the essential criteria for
the role, and strongly feel that I can make an effective and useful contribution to your companies
I have learned a great deal in my employment and education to date, including Product Launches, Up
Selling, Client Management and running Marketing Campaigns, all of which I am eager to put to use on
behalf of you and your clients. As you can see from my CV I am an award winning and accomplished
individual with a strong desire to succeed and lead others to succeed. My ability to negotiate with clients,
work as a team player and meet deadlines, along with my natural enthusiasm and optimism have all
contributed to my success in the sales industry.
I am a highly committed, tenacious and resilient self starter who is able to quickly understand a client's
needs and to then be able to organise a company’s resources to satisfy their requirements. On a personal
level I am open to any situation that is challenging and which tests my abilities, and with my work
colleagues I have a reputation as being a fast learner, who is dependable, organized, and computer savvy.
My background includes the management of a sales office which increased its turnover from £1.2 million
to £1.9 million over a 12 month period. With my present employer I have played a key role in the
successful establishment and opening of a new retail store, the hiring of staff and the setting of targets.
In closing I would like to say that I would very much like to bring my knowledge and experience to work
for your company, and am keen to schedule an interview with you so that we can discuss my application
in greater detail.
