Dear Ms. Crossbow:

My familiarity with enterprise resource planning and negotiating prudent contracts is sufficient to make me eligible for this position. Moreover, as a highly motivated and detail oriented individual, I can lead effectively in a multicultural environment.
My long term career goals are commensurate with your company’s mission which I why I am confident that my candidacy for this position is perfect. I will call your secretary next week to ask for a time when we can meet and discuss this position and can be contacted at (000) 333-3333.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
