Dear Mr. Cummings:
Given both my sales experience and my objective of a career in the fast-paced
advertising industry, I would like to explore options within Sales at Any
I have been involved in sales/customer service with a major U.S. carrier for four
years, in which time I gained the exposure and valuable work experience
necessary for success. I have learned the art, as well as the importance of, creating
a strong rapport with clients and demonstrating outstanding customer service for
successful sales. I have also learned unique approaches to problem-solving and
how to deal with rejection with renewed optimism and good humor. In addition, I
possess exceptional written, communication, and organizational skills. I am
proficient in Microsoft Word for Windows and can type effectively at 65 wpm.
I look forward to expanding my career in sales and advertising with Any
Corporation. I would certainly appreciate the opportunity to discuss how I can
apply my skills and knowledge to benefit your company. I would like to schedule
an interview at your convenience, and will call you next week to do so. Thank

Chris Smith
