Dear Ms. Weaver,
I would like to submit my candidature for the opening of Sales Agent advertised on your web site. I have worked for the past three years as a successful Outside Sales Agent in a business-to-business environment. I am a dynamic self-starter and aggressive salesman, able to function in a highly competitive environment. My track record boasts solid achievements both in terms of generating income and when it comes to follow up and customer service.
With a diploma in marketing, I have the necessary training to customize sales presentations to meet the needs of varying decision-making audiences. I am an excellent negotiator who can conduct client needs assessments and consistently meet sales targets. I am personable, dependable, and flexible. Should I be asked to work shifts or to travel, I am always willing.
Comfortable both in Mac and PC environments, I have a solid working knowledge of word processing software, databases, and internet and email. I am well organized, and especially capable at time management and multi-tasking.
Over the years, I have worked in a number of different industries, from pharmaceuticals and technology, to communications and transport. I am a quick study, and will easily familiarize myself with your product line. I am sure you will agree that I would be an asset to your sales team.
Thanking you in advance for considering my application. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding my qualifications. I can be reached at (555)-555-5555 and will be happy to provide any details you may require.
