Dear Ms. Wendy Willett,
I am writing to apply for the position of Field Sales Representative with Young’s Market Company.
I am self-motivated and enjoy talking with different people on a regular basis, so this job suits my personality well. I know how to make a good first-impression and how to hold the attention of the listener so I can explain the products to them. I have a very persuasive nature with the ability to help consumers understand why they need a specific product and how it can benefit them.
I have very strong verbal skills with the ability to explain the products to consumers by creating sales presentations tailored to suit specific types of individuals, instead of using a genetic sales pitch that seems boring and outdated. I also have the ability to think fast and adapt to the situation by mixing up the presentation as I go along to match the personality of the consumer.
I have an associate degree in marketing and four years of sales experience. I have the skills to take care of all paperwork, including sales reports, daily logs and contracts. I also have the ability to create and manage my own leads and to meet monthly sales quota. I understand that not everyone will be interested in the products offered and I have the ability to take rejection with a smile and a thank you.
I am the best candidate for this job and I look forward to meeting with you in person to discuss the details. Please call (555)-555-5555 to arrange an interview.
