Re: Job Posting – Sales Associate
Dear Ms. Reed,
I have the pleasure of sending my resume to you in response to your job posting today for a sales associate.
You say that you’re looking for a reliable and hardworking, experienced sales associate with excellent customer skills and this is exactly how my supervisors describe me.
In my current position, I amassed a lucrative and loyal customer base through networking, cold calling, and referrals.
After constructing an annual business plan with my superiors, I implemented these plans through meeting with clients and providing product demonstrations, answered their questions, and closed on the sale. In addition, I conveyed customer feedback and suggestions for modifications of products back to the executive level, and recommended further improvements.
I developed a Promotion of the Month campaign, which resulted in a 12% increase in sales, and prepared end-of-the-year reports for management’s analysis.
From what I’ve heard of your company, my acceptance as a sales associate should match the company’s goals, increase customer satisfaction, and augment sales. P
lease be in contact with me in the near future and I’ll be happy to come in person for an interview.
