Mr. Daniel Clifford
HR Manager
F&T Corporation
69 Wishing Well Road
Bronx, NY 67277


Dear Mr. Clifford:

Your advertisement for a sales executive position piqued my interest for two main reasons. Firstly, because a sales opportunity with F&T Corporation is exactly what I have been aiming for in terms of launching my career. Secondly, because I am very well qualified for the job and my competencies are in-sync with your requirements.

A recent graduate in Sales from the American University of Business, I am a well-spoken, highly courteous and people-focused person. I have a strong ability to build and maintain productive relationships with clients and to understand and anticipate their preferences. I strongly believe that my exposure to various cultures of the world and fluency in  English and Spanish will prove to be a real asset.

Focused on the achievement of sales targets through the promotion of high-quality customer services based on customer preferences, I can’t wait to become a part of the dynamic sales team at F&T Corporation and start making a productive contribution.

A short interview with you is just what I need to prove my candidacy. I will call your office to clarify any concerns you may have regarding my qualifications next Thursday. Meanwhile, please feel free to call me at (000) 555-4444 to set up a suitable interview date and time.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
