 A sample letter:
April 13,2000
P.O. Box 36
  Beijing University
  Beijing,China 10000
Dear Sir/Madam:
  Please consider me for your Sales Management
  Program. My background is one of selling ideas,
  concepts and programs, and of motivating
  myself and others to realize our potential.
Attitudes predict behavior - or so goes the saying in
sales. If this holds true, I am sure to be as successful in
sales management as I am in my college endeavors. My
unceasing optimism, self-determination and ability to set
goals have allowed me to achieve academic and
personal objectives.
Because of my "can do" attitude, sales will provide the
challenge and opportunity to continue my successful
history of setting and achieving goals. Please allow me
the opportunity to elaborate on how my background
predicts sales success. I guarantee you'll be providing
your corporation with an outstanding sales management .
Thank you for your attention.
Sincerely,
Deng Yun
