Mr. Donald Craig
Manager HR
Alberry Stores
7110 Meriden Road
Fairfield, CT 58290


Dear Mr. Craig:

While researching jobs on indeed, I came across your advertisement for an open position of a Salesperson at Alberry Stores. Consequently, I am writing to express my keen interest in this position as my background makes me a perfect candidate for this position.

As you will notice in my resume that most of my work during the last five years has been focused on promotional services. I have had direct sales experience in soliciting business from both existing and new clients and have been successful in meeting my sales goals every time. Moreover, my marketing background has enabled me in managing effective displays of products for the benefit of customers and my communication skills have assisted me in working directly with customers in order to provide them product information in a “rosy” manner.

I have heard a great deal about the services that your store provides and would like to take this opportunity to be an active part of Alberry Stores. I would appreciate a direct meeting with you so that we may discuss this in more detail. I intend to call you at the end of the week to ask for an interview date. You may call me at (000) 111-1111 if you need any information to support my credentials and claims.

Thank you for taking out the time to review my application. I look forward to meeting with you soon.
