Dear Mr. Staples:
Reading in today’s Times about the innovative sales techniques and increased profit margins
currently underway at Great Corporation, I was motivated to forward my résumé to see whether my
qualification might be a good fit for any current needs in your Sales Department. In particular, Great
Corporation’s new sales territory division and alignment plan mirror my interests in relational sales
tactics that I studied as part of my senior thesis in college. These concepts have served well in my
professional career in the following ways:
Increased slumping territory sales by 92%.
Developed 15 additional accounts through market research and needs analysis programs.
Negotiated 3 new vendor contracts, increasing office furniture line from 100 pieces to 1500.
My sales experience is broad, with experience in office supply, medical supply, and other professional
equipment. I am anxious to learn of potential opportunities to apply the knowledge and skills I have
gain to an innovative company, such as Great Corporation.
I am confident that a phone conversation or interview would further display the benefits of a future
connection between me and your company. Weekdays I may be contacted at 765-555-2103 after
3:00pm EST or via email at email@example.com.
