Dear Ms. Steel:
A business contact of mine, John Morningstar, suggested that I contact you regarding the open position of Sales Manager at your company.
As the current Sales Manager at Hire Us, I have several years of experience in the field of sales. In this position I am responsible for contacting prospective clients, as well as following up with current clients. I also supervise a team of five sales representatives.
Prior to my current position, I was a pharmaceutical sales representative for Biomedic. During my time with Biomedic, I increased western regional sales by 124%.
My stellar performance has been recognized by my past employers as I have won employee of the week on three occasions, as well as salesman of the year at Biomedic.
I am very interested in meeting with you to discuss this position further. Attached is my resume for your review. If I do not hear from you by the end of February, I will give you a call to set up a meeting.
Thanks again, and I am looking forward to meeting with you.
