Dear Ms. Sheila Miller,
I am very excited about the position of Territory Sales Representative soon opening within your company MacAllister Machinery Company, Inc. and hope that you will consider me a worthy candidate for this job.
I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing and over three years of experience working in sales. However, it’s my winning personality, ability to gain and hold the attention of the consumer and my persuasive nature that makes me the perfect applicant for this job. First impressions go a long ways in this business and I have the ability to make a good one.
I have extensive knowledge of the products you sell and the ability to learn and follow company policies and procedures. Answering questions and providing good information the consumer can use helps to encourage sales. I have strong verbal and written skills with the ability to keep accurate logs of daily communications, sales reports and contracts.
I am energetic, creative and enjoy meeting different people, so it’s easy for me to change the sales pitch to match the personality of the consumer and this helps to make a better impression. Other skills include having excellent organizational skills with the ability to manage my time wisely and to multitask efficiently. I also have the ability to meet monthly quotas and to bring in new business for the company. I have been preparing for this type of career since high school and hope to put my training, experience and personal expertise to work for your company.
You can contact me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555.
