Cover letters of today need more time and effort than they ever did in the past.
The reason is perhaps the increasing competition, and with it, the increase in employers’ standards.
Add substance to your cover letter by speaking about your skills and qualifications, and you can be sure that the next stop will be the interview stage!
Showing that you are both adaptable and flexible in a cover letter is very important. While you will not use these two words to describe yourself (we hope that you don’t), you have to imply that you are an individual who is open to new ideas and concepts. Showing that you can work independently also helps your case.
A counter sales associate cover letter example that does this is provided below for your reference:

Dear Mr. Ray:
I am interested in speaking with you regarding a Counter Sales Associate position with Lennox International. My sales and customer service background has prepared me well to make a significant contribution to your organization.
As one of the most highly regarded counter sales associates at ABC Company, I have been quite successful in engaging customers in conversation to determine exactly what it is that they are looking for.
Since 2018, I have increased sales by a staggering 75%, earning me accolades from the management and bonuses for every sale exceeding a certain target. As someone who is able to effectively handle sales transactions, provide assistance to customers in locating their choice of products, manage product demonstrations, and handle cashiering work (all at the same time), I am sure that your organization will benefit greatly from my experience and the hard work that I have put into self-training.
At the end of next week, I will contact your secretary to see if you have an available time slot when we can meet in person. Until then, you may contact me at (000) 333-5215 if you require additional information regarding my candidature and suitability to work at Lennox International.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
