Applying for a job not directly related to the previous work experience.

Mr. Leslie Marks
Global Sales, Inc.

Phoenix, AZ 85005

Dear Ms. Marks:

I recently came across your internet posting on your career board searching for a customer service representative. I feel that I am an ideal fit for this job, and wanted to send you a quick note to express my interest.

Over the past four years I have worked as a sales and marketing representative for Nationwide Marketing, Inc. During my time with them, I was responsible for prospecting for new clients, as well as providing customer service to existing customers. Though I did not work directly in the customer service department, I maintained daily contact with my clients to ensure great service. These skills and experiences will allow me to make an easy transition to the customer service industry.
